1st August, 2008.

If yesterday was bad today detioriorated still further, with steady downpours being heavier at intervals and then, thankfully, coming to an end in late afternnon.Within an hour small birds were in evidence along the track from the house ( 4/5 Willow Warblers, 2 Wheatears and at least two Whinchats with what I presumed were "local" families of Stonechat and Reed Bunting ). Another hour saw the summer visitors having moved away, doubtless relieved their migrations could resume in better conditions.
The forecasts look more reasonable for the next few days with favourable conditions developing for seawatching midweek ( SW veering NW ) and, from Sunday, nights being suitable for operating a moth trap.
