Upottery Airfield, Smeatharpe

Late posting for Sunday 23rd 7 p.m. No sign of the redstart but the 3 Whinchat by the control tower and 7 Wheatears.

This will be my last posting for the above site as i am moving away. I hope my findings over the past 5 years will inspire a few others to find local patches away from the coastal hotspots. Star birds have been Stone Curlew, GG Shrike, Bewicks Swan, Snow Bunting and various waders (Ruff, Whimbrel, Grey Plover etc) as well as good numbers of Golden Plover, Lapwing, Wheatear and Whinchat. I send good wishes to my friends Mike Hudson, Mike Reynolds and Richard Whiteside. 

However i am not disappearing as i am moving down to South Hams so i expect to still post in the future.
