2 of todays Redstarts ... all Redstarts are smart, but some are smarter than others!

The nearest we came to an Osprey carrying a fish !!

Good numbers today, though as to be expected, a bit thin on variety. The total of 9 Redstarts were all males, while other migrants included 14 Wheatears, 11 Blackcaps, 60 Willow Warblers and 40 Chiffchaffs. An early morning seawatch turned up 25 Manx Shearwaters and 10 Common Scoters. (New butterflies for the year today were Wall and Small Copper). PM, JL, TM.

Yesterday (5/4), an evening seawatch returned a total of 320 Manx Shearwaters, along with a single Red-throated Diver.
