.......And more to follow

Another cracking morning on the Ivinghoe Hills (3 September), with obvious migrants around and the 'chats' stealing the show.

3 COMMON REDSTARTS, the only showy one is a female favouring the bushes and fence line to the right ( East ) of the path between the S bend and the Beacon proper. There was another in these bushes, tail only seen as it was chased by the 'showy' female. The other bird was in the obvious clump of bushes East of the Trig on the South slope just off the 'lower' path, looked like a 1st winter male but very skulky. In this latter location there was also a Spotted Flycatcher.
5 plus Wheatears including a huge pale Greenlander.
1 juvenile WHINCHAT and 1 TREE PIPIT over
c20 YELLOW WAGTAILS with a number amongst the sheep but also flyovers.
