Beer Head

Despite the conditions, an excellent fall of migrants on Beer Head this morning. Very little around at dawn but things soon got going.  I was busy ringing, but Ian Pearson and my Dad (leading a group) were up there walking about. Totals between the three of us include:

5 Redstarts (all males), 2 Whitethroats, c80 Willow Warbler and 1 Wheatear.

Bun had a look at Beer Cemetery Fields and came up with another male Redstart, a reeling Grasshopper Warbler and 8+ more WIllow Warblers.
