Upottery Airfield, Smeatharpe

A quick look this morning after yesterdays deluge found 9 wheatears and 2 whinchat along with approximately 30 swallows feeding around the dung heap. No visible migration this morning and it is probably a sad reflection on their fortunes but have not had a single sand martin through so far this autumn.

Congrats to Doug and co at Budleigh yesterday with the Long tail but i see that it kept another clean sheet regarding shearwaters!
