Great Orme Warbler Rush

Autumn migration got underway on the Great Orme today with 40-50 Willow Warblers around the headland - great to see. Most bushes held at least one bird with a concentration of 15-20 birds at the bottom of the concrete road. 2 Spotted Flycatchers were along the stone wall while a lovely summer plumaged Golden Plover was in the sheep fields. All these birds arrived overnight as there was not a bird there last night!
Limestone gorse bushes held good numbers of Willow Warblers today

 2 Spotted Flycatchers were on the move
Some Willow Warblers shoed very well feeding out in the low gorse.
