Migrants in the shape of a Whitethroat this morning in the Hawthorn hedge and then a Wood Sandpiper this evening skulking and awkward to see in the vegetation of The Shunan. Also a couple of Arctic Skuas roaring around this evening, likely the pair from last year that frequented The Shunan.

On the duck front the Wigeon pair appeared, most probably a sign of failed breeding and the Gadwall pair were seen briefly.

Wood Sand, The Shunan (honest)

Arctic Skuas over the hawthorn hedge this evening

Also today I was shown a photo of a bird I could not ID. Not a very good photo but .... looked a bit like a Red Kite but, I will try and get hold of a copy to post.
