Upottery Airfield, Smeatharpe

First visit for somewhile this evening due to heavy work committments. However I was rewarded by the presence of 3 whimbrel on the airfield which was a nice surprise; also 10 swallows feeding low over a dandelion filled meadow. 8 stock doves, 2 chiffchaff and plenty of linnets present - the latter were noted on passage through the Blackdowns earlier in the day.
