A great couple of hours birding this morning, with our first wheatears of the year (I thought I'd missed them all) . One peregrine was seen, and Hope Point held a good fall of migrants which included willow warbler, blackcap and a good number of singing common whitethroats.
A couple of swallows were seen winging in over the cliffs, and later in the day the lovely chattering sound of house martins filled the air.
Three wheatears were seen on the undercliff, the first found by the Kingsdown pointer and two more on the stony area at the far end.
One decided to take a bath in a puddle, giving us the chance to crawl near (grown men!) so when it emerged onto the nearby rock we had it in our sights.
There were no other photo-opportunities, and we decided against pishing into the wind.
