When asked for advice on where to watch birds in the county, I find the link to the site guide on this blog is invaluable.

My own sighting highlight today was a pair of Willow Tits in good nesting habitat in Ffynone wood
Several Chiffs there but no other migrants although there were a couple of Blackcaps singing in the sheltered scrub in Poppit dunes early this morning.
