11th May

Light rain all morning left at lunchtime making way for a glorious, sunny, calm afternoon which produced the highlight of a fine male Bluethroat at Lochend; other migrant totals included two female Red-backed Shrikes lingering from yesterday, single Tree Pipit, Redstart, Whinchat, Ring Ouzel, Fieldfare, Spotted Flycatcher and Sedge Warbler, a small influx of 6 Pied Flycatchers, three Lesser Whitethroats, 5 Whitethroats, 10 Blackcaps, three Chiffchaffs, 14 Willow Warblers and two Song Thrushes.   The wind had switched to the west by early evening, hopefully the change in weather will produce some different birds after this spell of easterly airflow.
