Chats at the Bill

Several Whinchat, Wheatear, Redstart, Spotted Fylcatcher and a perched Hobby at Portland Bill today. Had the privelige of seeing Wheatear being ringed at the Obs - a first year male of the Greenland race shown here in the much photographed hand of Martin Cade. A beautiful bird to observe at distance let alone this close. Large numbers of Swift and Swallow also passing through.
