Weather looks perfect
Wow! Check out the weather charts. The weather lokms perfect for a fall of migrants over the enxt few days and hopefully a scarcity amongst them. The next few days through to the weekend could be promising. However, the past few days have been a bit quiet. Yesterday produced a Golden Plover and a Lesser Whitethroat (per alan Davies), while todays highlight was a Balearic Shearwater offshore with 100+ Manx Shearwaters (per Henerz). Migrants included 7 Goldcrests, a Golden Plover, 5 Northern Wheatears and a scattering of phylloscs. Resident birds include 4 Choughs on the limestone pavements while the Peregrines are showing superbly including two adults and a juvenile bird. Those migrants better wach out...!
