The east wind doth blow...well nearly

Great day, blue skies, warm and mostly windless...but there were migs to chase. Best of it I suppose were the 2 Yellow-browed Warblers. Found the first in the usual location in the roadside willows, and then South Dons finest payed a flying visit and found a second, despite hobbling around on his injured ankle. Also delivered Yellow Wagtail to me which was nice, and probably in truth bird of the day given how common YB Warblers are becoming.
Other birds in included Garden Warbler, Lesser Whitethroat, Whitethroat, Willow Warbler and Chiff-Chaff.

Good numbers of Meadow Pipits seemed to be streaming through all day...how long till  North-East Scotland gets its second Pechora, or amazingly its first Red-throated Pipit. Here's hoping.
