1st July 2017
Phil and I met by the Monument and walked to Hope Point via the Farm Wood. We had 57 Sand Martins, 261 Swifts and a Hobby moving N into the wind. At the Freedown we flushed a bird off the path onto the hedge and to our amazement we saw a female Common Rosefinch which gave us good but brief views before flying off towards Kingsdown. We followed as far as Hope Point but were unable to relocate the bird.
