An early morning visit coinciding with high tide was made hoping to catch up with some Migrants, a stunning morning heralded a good visit.
The Little Owls were in there usual spot in the Barn, hope to get them a nest box for next year, despite a number of summer visits over the years, cannot recall seeing any young.
On arrival as the mist started to clear 50 Sand Martins, 40 Swallows and a Swift dropped out of the sky and started to hawk the fields, a good start.
From then on I started to pick up many more migrants, 32 Yellow Wagtails made up of various flocks crowding the cattle, 5 Whinchat on top of the reeds and then 4 Wheatears were present nearby.
The Breach itself held a good flock of Curlew numbering 129 birds, in addition there was also
2 Green Sandpipers
60 Black Tailed Godwit
47 Ringed Plover
To cap off a good visit I then had 3 Bearded Tits on the walk back with 2 Hobbies hawking Dragonflies over the fields.
Migrant Hawkers seemed to be everywhere, also saw 4 Clouded Yellows and good numbers of the commoner Butterflies.
It was worth the visit just for the sunrise.
