Bits and Pieces

Peter Alderson had Whinchat, Grasshopper Warbler and a trickle of Phylloscs this morning on the limestone pavements and cemetery area. A little later Julian Hughes recorded a Golden Plover and a Wheatear near the Cairn. This evening a wander around the limestones produced 6 Wheatear including two superb male Greenland birds, a Whitethroat and 4 Willow warblers in the Hawthorns by the wall. Photo left - looking along the limestone wall towards the summit; often used by Wheatear to perch on and occassionaly Ring Ouzel or a tired migrant (but not today!)
