YBW action

Gave Galley a good thrashing today in lovely conditions - lovely & calm, with just a hint of a south-east breeze, after c. 18 hours of strong SE & rain.

Around the lighthouse road, chiffchaff and black redstart were clearly new in, while a mobile yellow-browed warbler was in the blue house garden (& then Old Spoon's new garden - oops!).

Failed to dig anything out in Dirk, but Shite Lane held another 2 (count 'em) yellow-browed warblers and c.8 chiffchaffs. A good few meadow pipits & skylarks were flying over too.

Good to finally see a few YBW at Galley this autumn - been a while coming!
