1st May

May, often an exciting month for birding at a migration hotspot, began very quietly. The vast majority of Robins and Dunnocks had moved on, and only a very small number of common migrants were seen. These odds and ends included 2 Sparrowhawks, 2 Whimbrels, a Woodpigeon, 8 Swallows, a Brambling, 2 Siskins and a Redpoll. A Willow Warbler, 2 Blackcaps, 3 Chiffchaffs and a Goldcrest were the only warblers.
