The weather today was looking allot more favourable for some more migratory action at the Farm! The day started very slowly but the low cloud was creeping in on a NW to N breeze. The corner was particularly chilly. Glen had a few Yellow Wagtail and a male Wheatear on the mound behind my position. A Water Pipit was found on the lagoons.
Even my crazy soul eventually succumbed to the elements and I took a short walk down the hill to join Glen and Swifty in slightly warmer climes. The action certainly got the blood pumping with three small groups of Med Gulls migrating N over the North Lake. The largest was a group of ten birds and seven and four made up the total of twenty one.
This was the second days movement of this species with a total of thirty nine birds who were all in a big rush to migrate N. A second Swift of the year along with double figure House Martin, Swallow and Sand Martin made up the mornings hall of species!
