Grim few days rescued by Lapland Bunting!

The last few mornings have been rather grim up the Orme, with lots of rain, low cloud and a brisk south westerly. Highlight on Thursday and friday were a single Lapland Bunting near the sheep dung on both mornings, both times giving away its presence by calling overhead.
videoThis morning there was a small fall of phylloscs around the cemetery along with 3 Blackcap, while the limestones held 2 Wheatear, 2 Goldcrest and one each of Willow Warbler and Chiff-chaff.
Good news is that the Swallows nesting near the church have started to leave the nest with above vieo footage being taken yesterday and this mornong only one was left..
