Migs Galore

Today on Patch we had 27 Wheatear, 5 Common Redstart, 1 Whinchat, 1 Ring Ouzel, 3 Whitethroat, 2 Swallow, 1 Sand Martin and about a trillion Chiffs. I saw at least one of each of them, which frankly catapults me away from the competition and through the 80% barrier, with nine new year-ticks in the last three days, during which I birded the patch for approximately four hours. A tick about once every half hour in other words.

All the best

  1. Obviously when you say that you saw at least one of each species, what you really mean is "I saw one of each species, except for ring ouzel, where instead I saw a blackbird badly 4 hours before someone found a real ring ouzel within half a mile of the same spot"

    Truth will out! I demand a recount!
