East to Middle Soar

Low cloud, mist and south-easterlies - surely worth a look!!

Migration really getting underway with black redstart on ploughed land by the airfield, cracking male wheatear on north side of Bolt Head then pristine female on the head itself, 3 chiffchaffs at the Starehole Wetland and 31 pied wagtails & 2 white wagtails at East Soar Farm.

Also: 80 golden plover circling Middle Soar, first meadow pipit in song display flight and several yellowhammers on territory - a month earlier than 2014!
