First Afternoon - an early Turtle Dove

We arrived at Cape Tenaro in the early afternoon (yesterday) to be greeted by near gale force westerly winds. There were however a few birds about including an early Turtle Dove, 3 Hoopoe, a single Woodchat Shrike, 7 Quail (all calling), 4 Black Redstart, 3 Common Redstart and small numbers of the commoner warblers.

Unexpected were several parties of Common Swift totalling 29 birds. There were also small groups of rather tired looking hirundines with 51 Swallows and 6 Red-rumped Swallows.
