The Wind Drops and Birds Appear

Stepping outside first thing it was obvious the wind was lighter and I could immediately see the effects with lots of passerines in the garden.  Suddenly a slightly larger bird flew up to a bare branch and there was a splendid Wryneck sitting preening.  As soon as I got my camera off it went.  There were plenty of Blackcaps and a couple of Pied Flycatchers and a Common Redstart. A Raven flew over calling.


Just before lunch friends Paul and Jan Williams arrived and Paul and I went for a walk.  This proved to be productive with a total of 12 Woodlarks, 5 flava Wagtails, Stonechat, 2 Whitethroats and 2 Whinchats.  By late afternoon we had added 3 Black Redstarts, 50 Rock Sparrows, 2 Short-toed Eagles and 3 Honey Buzzards.  Tomorrow's forecast is much better so maybe more to come.
