A singing chiffchaff with another bird seen in the valley to the beach and a whimbrel on the rocks at Wembury Point the only summer migrants this morning on a very muddy walk along the coast path.

The water pipit still on the beach near the sewage pipe with rock pipits and meadow pipits, looking pale and scruffy as it moults into summer plumage.
