The Ruff and the smooth

A strange day today! Heard a Whitethroat singing as soon as I got out the car, then saw a Whinchat and 16 Wheatears as the morning got warmer. Then, the wind got up and there was not much to be seen for the rest of the day, although I managed to avoid seeing a Tree Pipit & a Yellow Wagtail which did the usual fly-over-and-call-once thing!

Late afternoon and a smart summer-plumage Black-tailed Godwit and a moulting male Ruff had appeared. So 4 more year ticks. This is more like it!
