Lundy, ho!

A quick pitstop on Lundy. An overcast end to the previous night produced something approaching a proper fall. Hundreds of Willow Warblers plus Chiffchaffs and Blackcaps everywhere, hopping around on the shortest turf and everything. There must have been a rare there somewhere but we didn't find it. Had to make do with a female Pied Flycatcher feeding along a wall near the cemetery. Overhead a steady stream of Swallows and Sand Martins plus a single Tree Pipit.

PS. Two of the local House Sparrows were doing near-passable impressions of Yellow-browed Warblers,... 'fwee-eeest',... gawd knows?!
