Monday 24th September 2012

 Masses of Swallows and House Martins over Gallagher's Gallop both this morning and this evening.  A small passerine sitting on the Gallagher's Gap fence gave me the slip this morning just before I got my bins on it - it flew high and west never to be seen again.  It had a whiff of Whinchat/Stonechat to me :-(  Three Chiffies were flitting around a hedgerow on the footpath from Kiln Barn Road to Four Acres.  A Wheatear was also reported from the Research Station at the weekend.

Jumbo heading east, Swallow heading South!
