Swallows & Wheatears

I visited Orcombe today (via Gore Lane) to catch up on the spring birds I missed while out of the country!

Two Wheatear were seen today, one in the cattle field and the other at the top of a tree on the cliffs (see image).

Other birds seen were 2 Swallow hawking over the dung field crops, 3+ Skylark singing, two Shelduck and 2 Mallard in the cattle field. 3+ Chiffchaff were in song in the hedgerows and cliff bushes. A Blackcap was singing in the bushes by the WWII lookout, 5+ vocal Great Black-backed Gull patrolling over the cliffs. A pair of Peregrine Falcon were displaying over the cliffs.
