A walk around Harrington Airfield this morning was pleasant but mostly uneventful.  Plenty of evidence of migration on-going, the more obvious being small bands of Meadow Pipits on the move, a few wagtails overhead and quite a number of Whitethroats in the bushes.  Other warblers included Willow Warbler, Chiffchaff, Blackcap and Lesser Whitethroat.  Mike Alibone located a single Tree Pipit in amongst the Meadow Pipits and a single Wheatear played hide and seek.  A pair of Grey Partridge hid in the wheat stubble.

As I'm typing this a Raven has just 'croaked' over and the Nuthatches are again attracted to the garden feeders.
