1st-2nd June

Things traditionally become quieter on the migration front once we enter June and the first few days of the new month this time around were just that, with only a handful of new arrivals recorded. It was the passerines which came on the 1st, with a new female Red-backed Shrike at the Observatory, late singles of Blackcap and Garden Warbler, 2 Spotted Flycatchers and at least 2 Common Redpolls of note. On 2nd it was the turn of a few waders to pass through with a Wood Sandpiper at Kirbest the stand alone highlight while 3 Black-tailed Godwits, 52 Knot and 21 Dunlins were also seen.
