Dotterel adds interest to a quiet week

The fantastic weather did little to hot up the bird action on the Orme this week. Fortunately the Dotterel enjoyed the sunshine as is still present this weekend having given great views since Tuesday morning. 2 Spotted Flycatchers have been the highlight of the week, while Crossbill on Thursday and 2 today were also noteworthy. Visible Migration has been visrtualy non exsistent apart from a few finches, however things were a little better today - 3 Reed Bunting, Snipe, 3 Coal Tit and 20+ Siskin joined he small groups of Chaffinch, Greenfinch and Goldfinches. 20+ Goldcrests werepresent today along with 2 Blackcap, 2 Chiff-chaff and a Great Spotted Woodpecker.
