Whinchat fall

Whinchats were seen in relatively high numbers today at Marazion Marsh and at Land's End. Approx 20 were logged. The shots below were taken this evening on the marsh. In addition, there were 30 Northern Wheatear, 2 Redstart, 1 Yellow Wagtail and one Hobby at Land's End whilst at Nanquidno I saw the juv Woodchat Shrike. With the north-easterly air-flow over the UK, I would predict that by the end of the week, more birds of eastern origin should drift towards Cornwall.

The Chiffchaff below was taken today at Nanquidno.
