Oooh Migrants

Been good lately. Couple of Pied Flies, heaps of Spotties. Redstarts galore, friendly Tree Pipits. Just reached the ton, aka 90.09% Any suggestion of taking performance limiting drugs in order to reset my average is strenuously denied

Migrants at last

It's been quite a productive fall, although more productive for others than me by the sounds of things. Yesterday: redstart, garden warbler (in my garden - well it would be wouldn't it, except it was a garden tick) and greenshank. Today: pied flycatcher, snipe and grey partridge (I know, they're resident, but it was new for the year all the same).

The sea continues to be very quiet, apart from 1 fea's on saturday am and two yesterday (I missed all of 'em!) However today I weighed in with 5 (count 'em) arctic terns so it wasn't all bad, as that means I leapfrog Cap'n Haddock in the scores on doors. Shame there's so few big shears tho, seawatching is crap without them!
