...and still no migrants...

Surprised there haven't been any major signs of migrants on my patch at Chard this week. The best from the last few days has been an increase in the number of golden plover to over 300, 38 fieldfares still kicking about, loads of singing skylarks and yellowhammers and small numbers of meadow pipits and alba wagtails. I really expected to see a wheatear this week but it looks like that may have to wait as the weather is due to deteriorate once more as the week progresses.
