23rd May

The Great Spotted Cuckoo gave folk the run-around again today but did eventually give itself up to the majority of the still steady stream of admirers it's attracting. Another minor flurry of late migrants at the Bill included 10 Spotted Flycatchers, 7 Reed Warblers, 2 Yellow Wagtails, 2 Chiffchaffs and a Wheatear on the ground and a light passage of Swallows and House Martins overhead; a lone Hobby also passed through at Blacknor. A Balearic Shearwater through off the Bill was the only bird of note on the sea.
