Around the Axe

It's obvious there's been quite a bit of migration going on today, I wish I could have spent more time out there!

Swallows have been most obvious, with constant trickle for most of the day. Amongst them just a few Sand and House Martins, and my first Swift of the year.

At Black Hole Marsh late morning, a singing male Lesser Whitethroat, a Whitethroat and a Yellow Wag were the highlights. Then a few hours later, a Garden Warbler north of Coronation Corner besides the Axe with another Whitethroat, and a few Blackcaps and Willow Warblers. Gav also had a Redstart here a bit earlier.

This evening to top the day of nicely an immature male Marsh Harrier was hunting over Colyford Marsh

Tomorrow looks potentially exciting, with a light n w wind and some rain forecasted early morning...
