Back on Patchwatch today or at least part of it. Albeit a small area the patch has a lot of the features that might attract a migrant bird. Elderberries lots of Elderberries and Blackberries, water, there is a canal close by, high ground, scattered Hawthorn bushes, sheep, mature trees etc,etc. Nothing Mega today but new migrants non the less. Spotted Flycatchers 3, Blackcap, Lesser Whitethroat 2, Common Whitethroat and several Chiffchaffs.
Closer to home there was a Chiffchaff in the garden early morning and a Hobby jousting with a Kestrel late afternoon over the River Anker near the Rugby/Soccer ground in Nuneaton.
