Soddy Migrants

Well stopped in at Soddy after work tonight, damn glad i did. I checked the Flash first, a White Wagtail was a nice surprise.

Onto Soddy thought i better check the first field on the left out for Wheatear, with the bins oh theres one, no wait thats small, got the Scope out and BINGO my first ever Whinchat on Soddy, a cracking male. hold on theres another, a Female Wow!!!
5 Wheatears were in the same field. I then heard the familiar call of the Whimbrel. Must be on the island, and yes it was my first of the year but just the one. A White Wagtail was also on the Island along with 2 Common Sandpipers.. Brilliant, love it!
