I finished early again today as the weather looked promising for migrants and having not quite made it to Grove yesterday due to the handsome Little Bunting and arrived at the gate at 2.20pm. Highlight of the visit was a really smart male Whinchat in fields behind Harrison’s Drove hide. Not a lot else recorded due much time spent watching the Whinchat but other birds noted were 8 Hobbies, 3 Turtle Doves, 3 Marsh Harriers, 1 Cuckoo, 1 Wheatear and a Bittern booming.
