With yet another cold, wet and breezy morning with barely a migrant to be seen on the land it was a very welcome surprise when a singing Melodious Warbler was found at the Sycamores in the trapping area. It was quite vocal for a time and showed well if briefly on several occasions. There was a bit of visible migration though with 85 Swifts and 50 Swallows arriving. The sea was equally quiet with just two Grey Herons heading west and a Great Skua moving up-channel of note.
