I didn't get out for any meaningful patch visit today as I was out elsewhere for the day, however an early, and brief look around the Greenhouse Grounds and the bordering hedgerow with migrant Alley, was worth the 40 minute visit, as I found a WHINCHAT along the hedgerow. I also saw two CHIFFCHAFFS, a BLACKCAP and a MEADOW PIPIT, as well as the male KESTREL up on the Greenhouse roofs  :-)

I took some photo's of the Whinchat, but in the poor light and drizzle, they aren't the best!
Whinchat, I never tire of finding one of these on my patch  :-)
It flew from the hedge onto the fencline at Migrant alley
Where it breakfasted on Craneflies  :-)

Nice Whinchat shots Warren, especially given the gloomy weather at the moment :-)

Can't beat an on patch self-found whinchat - well done

Not bad considering the weather Warren, we need the sun for such shots.

It was a bit dull out there today Warren, nice to see the Whinchat though.

A Whinchat on the patch brightens up the dullest of days in my book Warren!
