A couple more migrants have joined the slowly growing Howick list this week.
Day before yesterday a singing Grasshopper Warbler greeted me as I went out to feed the garden birds before work. It rattled away for a good while, but there was no sign in the evening or since. A passage bird probably.
Tonight a slow stroll around our village, in the evening sunshine and a call rang out over head. 2 male Yellow Wagtails chasing each other overhead then off towards the coast. Nice bright birds lit up by the low sun. 7 Wheatears were together near the fallen wall in the coast field too.
Who needs a Rock Thrush...
