A light NE wind, bright sunshine and a great morning for Chaffinch movement locally.

The previous day was another bright warm day with winds from my usual favourite direction here (NW) but little migration was noted although siskin and chaffinch were heard high up throughout the morning. I spent some time looking at common birds in nice light. The below Jay was one of 5 on lighthouse down where a singing Firecrest and female Black Redstart remained.
