Ewden cabin + return 6/9/16. D Simmonite, S Green.
Poor today compared to recent days. More expected with the weather brighter and drier than yesterday. Still, that's birding. Best bird was the juv./fem. Merlin found for us again by the cabin Swallows. Also - Raven 6+, 1 juv. fem. type Stonechat, C Buzzard 6+, Kestrel 6+, Sprawk 1, Linnet 20, Mountain Mars Bars [ Meadow Pipits for the uneducated] continue to build up slowly, about 50. Still a movement of mostly House Martins and some Swallows but reduced.
