Forgot about the wheatear

Slip-sliding down the rankings, as expected with migs hopping all over the coastal patches. Just back from birding Galley with Seppy -- lovely red backed shrike, 2 wryneck, 2 whinchat a redstart, a curious looking reed warbler and piles of wheatears hopping about all over the place.

Which reminds me -- finally had wheatear on patch a couple of weeks ago. I'd practically given up on them when there it was... hopping around the edge of a freshly ploughed field with a mob of meadow pippits.

78 species... 94.55%... back up to fourth, and first of the Irish patches... at least until Seppy gets around to inputting his redstart.
