The highlight was finding my second Wryneck of the autumn, this time an individual with no tail. There was also a nice selection of other migrants knocking about, Throughout the morning there was a good passage of Hirundines, mainly Swallows and House Martins, and in Hope Gap the first wave of Blackcaps had arrived.
