Still quite a few migrants about despite the fact we're now getting Westerly winds up here. The last couple of days have seen a good variety of species, though only in ones and twos. The numbers of birds and species I've found on South Yell included; 1 Rosefinch, 1 Redstart, 1 Pied Flycatcher, 1 Whinchat, 1 Lesser Whitethroat, 1 Garden Warbler, 1 Ruff and various Blackcaps and Willow Warblers. Also had the briefest of views of a probable fly over Yellow Wag too... Mammals sightings recently have included the now expected Polecats and Hares.

Blackcap showing uncharacteristically well; and the usual crappy pic of a Rosefinch. These all seem extremely flighty this year;
