Raid Warning

::Sirens start wailing::

Attention all hirundines in the Exe estuary area, with especial regard for Exminster lagoon.
Hope's Nose reports two Hobbies northbound at high speed. Watch your sixes, people!



In other news, the stiff SSW blew out pretty much everything on land, with the only birds of note singles of Whitethroat and Willow Warbler. I gave the sea half an hour, despite the blazing sunshine, and was rewarded with 7 Gannets, a Fulmar.. and a Puffin!

More detail when I have more time, but yesterday there was a small fall at the Nose [birds that caught the overnight front, I suspect] with quality if not quantity, and otherwise it's been pretty dead over there.
