Clearing skies and a light NE breeze provided excellent conditions for migrants to move at last. Heading out over the channel to Wales in the space of an hour from 11.15 were 67 Swallows (including a single loose flock of 33), 11 Sand Martins and 2 House Martins. Also a steady flow of Meadow Pipits, with a light passage of Goldfinches, Linnets and alba wagtails.
