On the walk home, things got even better, above the paddocks at Migrant Alley 3 BUZZARDS were soaring directly overhead, and as I scanned the fencelines for the Wheatear seen earlier, I found not one but four! Of course, after seeing that lot I was off home double quick to get my camera, with the following results :-)
I stayed around Migrant Alley for the rest of the visit, hoping for another passage bird to drop in, which never happened, but that was made up for by the number of Raptors seen. Two SPARROWHAWKS, a KESTREL, another Buzzard, and 3, possibly 5 HOBBIES! Three were seen together, and as they drifted higher and further away, two more came into view just seconds later, though they may have been two of the original 3.
A SWIFT was seen feeding with the SWALLOWS, as were a couple of HOUSE MARTINS, and two CORMORANTS circled round with a flock of HERRING GULLS. In all a very nice afternoon ;-)
The photo's below were taken whilst I ate a very light lunch in my garden
