And still they come...

Still five wheatear close to the house this morning - all male again too. Looking very sorry for themselves in the cold easterly wind though, they were hardly moving to feed.

Wheatear: R Harris
A visit to Pudleigh sewage works this afternoon found 25+ chiffchaff flitting around the hedges and filter beds looking for insects. Showing really well for photos -

There was also another (or possibly the same) tristis type chiff among them but was only seen very briefly. Sadly Dave Helliar picked up a casualty of the weather, a dead sand martin close to Chard. Have a feeling it won't be the last if the cold weather continues...
