Lutley Wedge 06/05/11 (12°c) Bright with broken high cloud. Breezy (S) F2/3

With the wind finally switching around to the South and some cloud cover this morning a few migrants were grounded. A superb ♂ Whinchat was along the track to Wassell Grove Pools briefly first thing (the 3rd this spring), before flying over to the nearby horse paddocks, where it joined a ♀ Wheatear in the same field. Also 3 Yellow Wagtails flew over and a another Sedge Warbler and Garden Warbler were all new in overnight.
