Migs in the (wrong) morning

Well there were migs in the morning but alas I was in London when the ol' bill was piling in the birds and by the time I got back from my travels they'd pretty much all bogged off.  The only passerine remaining was a garden warbler, a bit disappointing really.  However, a hobby buzzing around was only my second for the patch and a gadwall was not only my first for the year but best of all, a garden tick.   Other bits and pieces included a long over due osprey (again over the garden) and a common tern and Arctic skua on a brief sea watch.  So, half a dozen or so patch birds over the weekend bring the tally up to 134 and 86.45%.

Happy days
