Upottery Airfield, Smeatharpe

Relatively speaking another good morning (relative in terms of an inland site with little or no water and surrounded by intense agriculture compared to coastal/estuary site!).

Nothing in quantity (the clear night put paid to that) but 8 Wheatear, 1 Whinchat and the Redstart still and showing well. A light passage of Swallows (50+ south west), an increase in Meadow Pipits (30+) and Chiffchaffs (5) plus the first Snipe of the autumn. 2 Great Spotted Woodpeckers, 3 Buzzard, a Sparrowhawk and a Hobby.
