Yellowhammer in Hope Gap
Around the coastguard cottages i finally caught a glimpse of a Phyllosc Warbler. I got onto it quickly and the well defined supercilium, long primaries, brown lower mandible, brown legs and yellow upper-breast that this was my first Willow Warbler of the year. A Chiffchaff was also nearby.
By the wood a a further 3 Chiffchaffs and Willow Warbler was seen and at the top of Hope Gap another 2 Willow Warbler, including one in full song and a Red-legged Partridge. A Swallow also flew over.
