A good start
Visits to a couple of sites on the sunny side produced a smattering of northbounders. A spanking male Redstart was probably the pick of the bunch with 1 House Martin, 3 Blackcap, 8 Sand Martin and tonnes of Chiffchaffs and Willow Warblers providing support. There appeared to have been a proper arrival of the phylloscs, they were still concentrated in little flockettes (I like to think they'd just dropped out of the sky together) and feeding like crazy.
