A Splendid Hour

Most of today was sunny periods but with a near gale force northerly wind.  Then something magical happened about 6pm the wind dropped completely and the sky cleared to give warm sunshine.

Male Common Redstart

At that point birds were beginning to move to their roosts and c20 Rock Sparrows were on the overhead wires at the bottom of my garden.  It was then I kept seeing Pied Flycatchers everywhere.  I estimated that about 20 were around my garden soon to be followed by 2 Black Redstarts and a superb male Common Redstart,

Short-toed Eagle

If that was not enough 5 Short-toed Eagles passed over heading south.  Nothing for hours then an hour of good birds.
