Sunday 29th September
A bright start and another migrant in, this time a Wheatear on the newly rolled/tilled field N of Church Lane, Barming. It had 56+ Meadow Pipit, Pied Wags and a small flock of Linnets for company. A Yellow Wagtail called overhead, and a Blackcap (male) and 3 Chiffchaffs flitted around in the elderberries along Church Lane. Later, with the temperature soaring, up to 5 Buzzards were catching the thermals, distant dots but given away by their mewing. Later afternoon, while checking to see if the Wheatear was present (it wasn't!), a Hobby dashed through SW and down into the river valley.
