A very early Fieldfare at Trewince was my earliest record after a single, 24th Sep, flying over at ASF, Salop.
At the two sites that I looked at today, you could see that there was an increase in migrants with Spotted Flycatcher being the most numerous. Altogether I managed to see 1 Fieldfare, 16 Spotted and 3 Pied Flycatcher, 5 Tree and 3 Meadow Pipit, 2 Whitethroat and Whinchat, 7 Blackcap, 20+Wheatear, 4 Chiffchaff, 10+Willow Warbler, 20+White, 5 Pied Wagtail and 6 Yellow Wagtail.
Will Scott let me know that there was a Fieldfare at Trewince with good numbers of migrants and when I arrived I found the thrush in the nearby pines with up to 8 spotted Flycatcher.
Over 45 Spotted Flycatcher were seen on St Mary's.
Small numbers of Pied Wagtail are starting to arrive with White Wagtail.
I saw up to 5 Tree Pipit
Less numbers of Wheatear around
My only Bar-tailed Godwit of the year so far was at Porthloo
Jane Louise Weaver (born 1972 in Liverpool) is an English singer, songwriter, and guitarist. She runs the record label Bird. Weaver has performed as part of the Britpop group Kill Laura, the folktronica project Misty Dixon, and as a solo artist. Jane Weaver’s sixth solo album, a concept album called The Silver Globe, is as multifaceted as it is beguiling. Part coming of age/part cautionary tale and part romantic peon, this synth ridden post-apocalyptic prog pop opus is based on tightly embroidered, non-linear recurring themes and inspired by esoteric stories, cosmic imagery and refiltered past experiences. Written from the optimistic vantage of a long-standing female independent artist, in an desperately evolving industry, Jane’s latest set of self penned pop abstractions combine mechanical rock/recycled European cinema/empyrean vocalisations and an arsenal of rescued vintage synths to create a futurist narrative backdrop of a allegorical post apocalyptic landscape.
