Always a pleasure
It's a grotty, grey day out on Newland's Farm. Overnight, the conditions were perfect for depositing a few migrants around the area so it wasn't too surprising to discover a juvenile Whinchat perched atop the garden Elder bush. It was fly catching and dropping down onto the stubble, beyond the garden hedge.
A few groups of Swallows have passed overhead, Robins and Song Thrushes have suddenly appeared around the Vine Close gardens - autumn is upon us.
