Migrants galore

Another perfect morning! 
I set out from the beach and made my way towards the North Wall and soon realised there had been an overnight influx of warblers. Whitethroats, Blackcaps and Chiffchaffs were singing
from the Slipe Field bushes and Lesser Whitethroats were very active feeding but very difficult to photograph, constantly flitting from bush to bush....

Very occasionally they would pause and enable a record shot.

However best of all was a superb male Redstart in the field nearest the end of the dog walk.

Poor cropped shots but I was just delighted to have this brilliant bird on the patch.

On the return journey an obliging Collared Dove, Wren in full song and a spadge!

A short but rewarding walk.
