Migrants continue to arrive on the east wind - May 3rd

Another good morning on the Orme - these eastelies are certainly starting to kick in. I only managed to do the limestone pavements as today was back to work day. Totals prior to 8.15am included - female Black Redstart, 7 Whinchats (6 males!), 5 Yellow Wagtails (including 3 on the ground), 3 Tree pipits, singing Lesser Whitethroat, 30+ Willow Warblers, 50+ Wheatears with many arriving as I left. 7 summer plumaged Dunlin were also unusual. Let's hope it continues!
