Despite the BBC weather forecast on Radio4 saying that England had been grim, dull, overcast and rainy while some sunshine had been in Scotland, our whole day was clear sunny and warm with a light E3.

A pair of Lapwings (86) turned up in the back field today, the male tumbling and calling all over, the hum from his paddle shaped wings could be clearly heard.

Along the coast path a single Whitethroat was the only thing of note.

Hi Helen, the number means that Lapwing was my 86th species recorded on my patch ( see map on post below) in the month of May.
Garden Warbler was my 85th on the 10th May...
