The south wind proved to be quite good for raptor movement as 3 MONTAGU'S HARRIERS (2 males and 1 female) migrated northwards, one after the other. A female Marsh Harrier and 2 Kestrels, plus a (local) Goshawk were also moving above the grassland.
Hobby (same as above)
Local patch: migration today was visible also from home as the gardens held at least 3 Whinchats (2 m, 1 f) and a male Common Whitethroat, plus some Swallows flying past. A Tree Sparrow represented a patch year-tick. A quite scarce bird here.
The other day I also had a fly-by Yellow Wagtail above the coast, which was the 3rd record for the patch.
Nightingale and Scops Owl are now heard on a daily basis.
