Another morning at Uskmouth, another dose of migrants. Two Marsh Harriers seemed to be drifting west, both female-type, a largely dark bird skimmed the reeds at 07:00 whilst a paler crowned/forewinged individual was circling off St. Brides/Peterstone at around 08:00. The arrival of one Whitethroat and two Lesser Whitethroat has pretty much rounded off the local warblers; and five Sedge, one Reed Warbler and one Wheatear were the best of the rest.

Be vewy vewy quiet,...

PS. By the way, logged somewhere just short of 40 singing male Cetti's over the last two days.

[Addendum: an hour sky-watching this afternoon produced Peregrine (2 sightings of, presumably, the same bird), Sparrowhawk (1), Buzzard (6+), Raven (1) and a handful of Lesser Black-backed Gulls; had 10 minutes inside-of-eyelid-watching at one point which, surprisingly, produced nothing]
