Great Orme migrants, April 19th

Here are one of today's super male Whinchats and a sonogram of the flyover Woodlark (recorded using my remembird device and uploaded to Ravenlite 1.0 to produce sonogram).

Loads of migrants on the Great Orme today - highlight was the Woodlark that flew low along the northern edge and out eas over the churchyard, uttering it's call constantly as it disappeared into the distance. Loads of migrants were on the headland, including a flyover Dotterel (A Davies) and another 3 probables (Pete Alderson), 2 Whinchats, one near the gully and one near the Churchyard (PA), a male Ring ouzel (P and J Kennerley) and a female (AD), 3 Yellow Wagtails, 25+ Tree Pipits, singing male Redstart above ski Slope, Lesser Whitethroat (PA), Sedge Warbler, Grasshopper warbler, one at the Old Cafe and one at the north end gorse (P + JK), 80+ Wheatears (including 50+ that arrived mid morning), 50+ Woodpigeon, 50+ Lesser Redpoll, Reed Bunting and 20+ Willow Wabler dotted around. I wish every day was like this!


  1. Yes the sonogram, definately Woodlark!

  2. There's also Chough in there somewhere too, and wind, a flock of Meadow Pipits, a grasshopper and my heart beat racing!
