A text from Jamie Partridge and after a few mid-morning chores I headed over to the Marshes where we sat at the raptor watchpoint (!) where earlier three Common Buzzard passed through. We picked up a Hobby dashing through in ambitious attempts to turn it into a Redfoot, with another seen later on.
Three Swallow were also seen suggesting possible breeding activity nearby, but maybe straggling migrants.
Put two birders together and all they seem to talk about is what could be possible at this time of year. I think the June doldrums were mentioned (which I think has been officially cancelled for 2015), the possibility of Crossbill perhaps but surely a bit too early by my reckoning.
