A day trip to the beach prevented me from the usual patch walk today. However, I have just got back from a half hour walk round Migrant Alley, where a lone WHEATEAR was seen. Also there, were small flocks of LINNET, GOLDFINCH, and PIED WAGTAILS feeding in the paddocks. A group of 30-40 SWALLOWS and a few HOUSE MARTINS were overhead, and as I neared home, I again saw the PEREGRINE, soaring to the north, being mobbed by Swallows.
Normal sevice will be resumed tomorrow!!
