A couple of summer arrivals seen on the local patch this morning, there were plenty of Yellow Wagtails (Lavandera Boyera / Motacilla flava iberiae) and a singing Sedge Warbler (Carricerin Común / Acrocephalus schoenobaenus) which was a year tick bringing me up to 195 so far.
There was also a secretive female Bluethroat (Pechiazul / Luscinia svecica) in the same spot.
