Migrants are finally back

Firstly the American Bittern is still at Carlton Showing well now for the masses.

Back in Corton migrants are finally arriving but the garden as always this time of year can be productive. Wednesday a Lesser Whitethroat was singing from the tree down the bottom of the garden whilst checking thr moth trap. It was still about when i returned in the evening.
A Male Brambling visited feeders showing up on my feeder cam. nice surprise.

Lots of Siskin going over too and small flocks of Sand Martins and Swallows too.
On patch Wheatear and Stock dove
April 18 a Ring Ouzel flew over COSW and on the sea Porpoise and Common Scoter
April 19th Beefly and Brimstone butterflies in the garden but no Lsr Whitethroat, it does seem to have moved to CNSW as there is now one singing there.

Also my first Common Whitehroat of the year, infact 2.

Common chiffchaff and Blackcap everywhere.
April 21st 2 Lsr Whitethroat CNSW, at COSW another Lsr Whitethroat and a Snipe and then a 4th Lsr Whitethroat singing from the playing field hedge on my road on my way back
Today more of the same and a female Ring Ouzel at the CNSW and a Yellow Wagtail over COSW.
A Marsh Harrier flew over CNSW and a patch year tick Willow Warbler was singing from the edge of Furse wood.
Very nice weekend weather wise but very little reward for many hours on the patch.
