13th June

After the wind dropped yesterday evening there was a small hope that today might bring with it some calmer weather (accompanied by migrant birds and moths galore). However, it was not to be as the wind picked back up overnight and the afternoon was riddled with heavy rain showers. That being said, the day was not without its highlights, the main one being the return of the mid-morning Rosy Starling (its getting like clockwork, arriving in the mid-morning and leaving before noon - today it resurfaced at Reap Lane during the afternoon). The best bits from the mornings sea watch included one apiece of Grey Plover and Balearic Shearwater, along with all the usual suspects. The land was much quieter with little more than singles of Blackcap, Spotted Flycatcher and Wheatear.
