Hard Going

The weather has been as boring as the birdwatching of late.  Low cloud and no wind and a little dampness as well.  A Common Redstart was in the garden first thing and at lunch time a Red Kite drifted over.  This prompted me to go out and look around.


Checking the vineyard roads I found a Stonechat and then suddenly there were lots of small birds feeding by a sunflower field.  Most were Goldfinches and Linnets but there were also quite a few Rock Sparrows.  A little further on a group of eight very mobile Wheatears suggested some real migration.
