Move along…

…there’s nothing to see here.

And yesterday evening, there certainly wasn’t. Felt inspired by news of the discovery of a Subalpine Warbler down in the south mainland, and gave my end of the island a thorough flogging to find a nice sylvia all of my own. Predictably, nothing doing. In fact, apart from a half dozen confiding Twite feeding on the verge, a couple of Goldcrests and a Chiffchaff  in the plantation were all that was even vaguely notable. There’s an obvious dearth of Wheatears around the house compared to elsewhere on the isle, and I’ve still yet to see any Whimbrels this spring. Perhaps the Hoopoe has lulled me into expecting too much too soon.
