Great Orme migrants - just a trickle

The past week has seen a trickle of migrants through the headland and it has been guite hard going to get motivated each morning. Between 1-4 Tree pipits have moved through each morning for the past six days, while ones and twos of Willow Warblers and Blackcaps have been present. Crossbills have been on the move with six yesterday and ten this morning. Wheatears have included the first Greenalnd birds of the year. Tuesday saw 25+ birds on the headland but this was down to 2 yesterday! 10+ were present this morning. A nice White Wagtail showed well on the limestones the last few mornings.
Best of the rest have included 3 Blulfinches, max of 35 Siskin yesterday and a trickle of Redpolls. Things can only get better!
