The 2nd of May and still temperatures are struggling to get into double figures but a 5.45 am start and a long day out and about was enjoyed. Highlights were a female Ring Ouzel that flew over my head, perhced briefly before carrying on toward Foxhill down first thing, a smart male Common Redstart on Lighthouse down, 2 Tree pipits over N, 3 or 4 Yellow Wagtails, a Siskin flew East and a Garden Warbler was an added to the year list near the NT Car park.
Many Whitethroats and Lesser whitethroats were in song and perhaps 15-20 Swallows flew East over the day plus a single House martin. I also saw a pair of White Wagtails on lighthouse down, which could be the pair that bred there last year retuning. A Black Redstart was also heard singing out on my wanderings in Dover this evening.
