05/05/10 Lutley Wedge (9/16°c) Bright/sunny spells with scattered high cloud, clouding over later. Light N/NW breeze 2-3

Female Whinchat and Wheatears Lutley Wedge 5/5/10

Sedge Warbler Wassell Grove Pools 5/5/10

A small 'fall' today with 1F Whinchat and 3 Wheatears (1M2F) in a ploughed field at Foxcote. Also 1 Yellow Wagtail flew overhead >West. With no rainfall overnight, i think that the increasingly cloudy skies overhead during the morning combined with a light headwind must have grounded them.

3 Sedge Warblers
1 Lesser Whitethroat
2 Garden Warblers
3+ Common Whitethroats
2+ Chiffchaff
8+ Swallows
19 Swifts
8 House Martin

Lutley Wedge 7.00pm:- 2 Male Wheatear (probable Icelandic/schiloeri) in ploughed field below Foxcote House Farm. (T.H)
