Lutley Wedge 27/03/11 08.50am (BST) (5°c) Cold grey and overcast. Wind (E) F2

'All about Pipits.....Until the big Milvus!'
With a big improvement in visibility today after yesterdays disappointing migration non-event due to the thick murk, it was good to see birds were on the move again in numbers even if it mainly involved Meadow Pipits. At least (134) flew through and several flocks were grounded by the heavily overcast skies, but the undoubted highlight was a superb Red Kite which flew over at Wassell Grove Pools heading SW at 10.52am.
Also at Wassell Grove Pools:- 1 Swallow, 2+ Chiffchaff.
