Tried a spot of VMW from the hill from 7.00 - 10.00 this morning. Totals were: Meadow Pipit 360, Skylark 16, Swallow 18, alba Wagtail and c.30 Chaffinch all going South. Hardly earth-shattering numbers but I reckon there's some potential here as loads more birds were streaming south just to the east of where I was watching from, and were only in silhouette due to the rising sun. Finding the best spot will be critical and I was probably in the wrong place.
Also of interest were 5 Song Thrush in the top scrub.
I'll see what the coming weeks bring.
