Not Quite Berry Head : ORCOMBE.

A brilliant mornings birding here today, even knowing Berry Head had hit big time!
Just a Lesser Whitethroat before the geo-needle, but birds increased as I walked East :  Two male Redstarts,
two male Whinchats, 15 Wheatears, one Grasshopper Warbler, and showing, 3 Sedge Warblers, 9 Whitethroats,two Garden Warblers, and on the way back a female Pied Flycatcher in the old pines.  Add to that numerous Willow Warblers and Blackcaps, swooping Swifts and a few Whimbrel overhead,and I was loath to leave.
