Reed Warblers feeding frantically before heading South. Some of them choose the Willows and Hawthorns.
Sparrowhawk sightings increase as more birds appear in the dune areas. One I watched today caught a Meadow Pipit. (Meadow Pipit numbers are increasing with several small flocks coming in off the sea.)
Druridge still worth a look. My prediction for the next wader there is Buff-breasted Sandpiper.
Lesser Whitethroats, Common Whitethroats and Blackaps all quite common early morning in the dunes at Chevington. Time for a Red-backed Shrike, but it seems Whitburn is getting in first.
