The feeling this morning was one of impending autumn with small flocks of finches etc all over the garden. Lots of Goldfinches, Serins and Chaffinches with quite a few Starlings gathering to feed on our figs. I also noted at least 6 Blackcaps and a Chiffchaff as well as 2 of our resident Sardinian Warblers. Perhaps predictably a Sparrowhawk soon arrived and just as rapidly the garden cleared of birds.
I took a look around the hills nearby and did catch a glimpse of a Dartford Warbler.
