30th-31st May

30th May

Unlike some UK bird observatories we're currently grateful for very small mercies so a little arrival of new common migrants has been welcome this mrng: 3 each of Reed W and Spot Fly, 2 Wthroats and a Bcap new around the Obs so far; singles of RtDiver and GNDiver thru on the sea.

31st May

Migrants going both ways at the Bill this mrng: first presumably departing Cuckoo has just shown up at the Obs, whilst a brisk headwind has dropped a steady little arrival of late arrivers incl double figures of Reed Ws and several Spot Flys.
