Portland & Cholsey

Overcast, misty 10°, breezy SW.

By the time we arrived most of the land migrants had passed through so a brief sea watch produced an Arctic Skua, a couple of Common Scoter and Manx Shearwater.

The best bird of the day was a Grasshopper Warbler heard this morning along the brook that runs alongside Whitehead Meadow before we left for Portland.

Some news from the Eastender today: a Swift with several House Martin this evening over the garden and several Common Whitethroat along the Bunk line.

Also a few Orange Tip Butterfly.
