An impressive migration day - the highlights were a female marsh harrier, a male black redstart and, arguably bird of the day, a rook!
Also of note: 122 chiffchaff, 39 willow warbler, 9 goldcrest, 24 blackcap, 2 common redstart (male and female), a common sandpiper, 2 collared dove, 13 sand martin, 35 swallows, 2 merlin (male and female)
Particular thanks to Mike and Kathy Y-P for the majority of records today
