Another watch-and-wait (...and wait...) session for me in warm, calm, sunny conditions.
Visible migration was modest but fairly steady until 1320. No target species!
My tally between 0915 and 1415 was 173 meadow pipits, 24 sand martins, 5 swallows, 7 linnets, 5 redpolls and 2 siskin. Almost all were heading NE over the city and on course for Ingleborough.
Yesterday's lesser whitethroat was still advertising his presence. A couple more willow warblers in the wood. A pair of stock doves and up to seven local sparrowhawks were noted. The nine hundred or so PG are still on Colloway Marsh.
