Upottery Airfield, Smeatharpe

Whilst all you guys were enjoying the seawatching some of us were working. However the first swift of the year this evening along with a number of swallows and house martins. 2 whimbrel found the flooded rough pasture to their liking and 3 wheatear were busy catching big black flies. Plenty of linnets and skylarks, one stonechat and a record number of mallards, which at 5 is not saying very much!!
