morning dove

A couple of fly-pasts by a collared dove were very welcome this morning (80). Usually only get 2 or 3 in a year at Galley, so always good to see.

Skived off this afternoon and bumped into a smattering of migs. A cracking male black redstart was the highlight, but a mixed flock of phylloscs was good practice to work through this early in the spring with 2 chiffchaffs and a willow warbler working the hedges on the top lane. A couple of male wheatears completed the haul - all good (79).
