First Whinchat of the autumn



Another early morning visit to Canons in the rain today yielded excellent views of this splendid Whinchat which was accompanied by a Northern Wheatear.


It's great to see we're getting a strong passage of migrants (for Banstead at least) with Tree Pipit, Spotted Flycatcher, Whinchat, Yellow Wagtail and 2 Northern Wheatears this month (and all but the Tree Pipit in the last four days). Any day now we've got to get a Wood Warbler, Common Redstart or Pied Flycatcher!
