Harbour Update – posted 10/04/15

There was perhaps evidence of a small fall of migrants around the harbour with both Willow Warbler and Blackcap appearing in a number of places. At Lytchett Bay there was still 1 Ruff and a Wheatear. Bizarrely, one of the Middlebere Barn Owls was out hunting late morning in the bright sunshine and there were 2 Red-legged Partridge up on Hartland.

Last nights recording session was pretty quite with a single Song Thrush, 1 Moorhen, my local vocal Tawny Owl and this interesting Water Rail call, which Nick Hopper has kindly informed me is the beginning part of a female song. Why it would be choosing to do this over my house at 1am is another story.
