Our first afternoon .........

We arrived on the headland at about 2.00pm today after a morning at the Evrota delta (very few migrants seen there however good views of both male and female hen harrier).

At Cape Tenaro it was clear from the outset that there had been a small fall and without much effort we clocked up 16 Hoopoe, 35 Northern Wheatear, 10 Woodchats, 13 Subalpine Warblers, 16 Hoopoe,  3 Wryneck, 8 Nightingale, 8 Redstart, 5 Black Redstart, 3 Whinchat, 2 Song Thrush and two male Collared Flycatchers. There were a few other migrants including an early Pied Flycatcher and a stunning male Rock Thrush. 

East to south-east winds overnight so hopefully something interesting tomorrow.
