More track work

Only a half day on the track today as other stuff to do. Help arrived in the shape of a loader...

unfortunately it was a bit small.

Male Hen Harrier and Buzzard were seen from The Shunan but unfortunately they were out of the tetrad. Also in the distance a flock of about 100 Golden Plover.

Two flocks of Pink-feet went north or north-west, a 10 and a 23. Best today though were the four Wheatears on the northern edge of the tetrad found as I drove in the back way, best of all a bit of a struggle through the undergrowth with the scope got them onto the "from the garden" list. The SE wind should have brought something rare I would have thought, finding it is the thing.

A sunny day today, the first for ages and just a gentle breeze, nice.
