7th September 2017

Few grounded migrants today with a Whinchat, Common Redstart, Garden Warbler, five Blackcaps, three Common Whitethroats, four Lesser Whitethroats and four Willow Warblers. We did however have a reasonable fall of 38 Chiffchaffs, our best autumn total this year. Feeding over the fields were 4350 Swallows, 2200 House Martins, 10 Sand Martins and two Swifts.

This puddle at the end of The Droveway was providing a drink for hundreds of swallows and a Sand Martin. If only we had a more permanent water source.
