June is coming to a close and we’ve mainly been locked into SW airflow, things have been quiet in terms of birds. With very little to report despite daily ventures up the cliffs, an increasing number of Swifts and smaller numbers of Barn swallows all moving west on each visit but little else.

Local Peregrines have fledged 2 chicks this year, with another pair down the cliffs also rearing 2, all noisily learning about life.

Im seeing good numbers of Hummingbird Hawkmoths, there were 3 in my garden yesterday and i counted 5 feeding on vipers bugloss near fan bay.

Orchids too are providing entertainment with many Spotted, Pryamidal amd Fragrant Orchids and only a few Bee Orchids all of the latter are over now.

So until the bird situation changes (perhaps with the SE wind this coming week) This blog will remain a little dull Im afraid!
