Upottery Airfield, Smeatharpe

A quick look this morning saw a hint of migration with single Wheatear and Hobby, 5 Chiffchaffs, 2 Willow warblers and a Whitethroat. A Sparrowhawk caused chaos amongst the many finches and starlings. A young Brown Hare was a pleasant surprise. Plenty of gatekeepers, meadow browns and common blues on the wing plus the odd small heath.
