Upottery Airfield, Smeatharpe

The cold grey weather produced probably the best morning of the Spring so far with 6 Wheatear (5m,1f), the first Spring record of Whinchat for the site, the 2nd ever and again first Spring record of Tree Pipit and the first record of Whitethroat for the year. 

Linnets still seem to be passing through with a small flock of 12 this morning (in addition to potential breeders). Last week saw a trickle of Wheatears with Monday (13th) being the best with a total of 8 birds along with 35 Linnets.
