Mini fall at The Scrubs

Wheatear (an autumn bird)
It was a magical morning at The Scrubs today with not one but two male Common Redstarts in the grassland along with three Whinchats (including two males) and a handsome male Northern Wheatear. Add to that mix a lone Swallow heading north and several Willow Warblers in song then I would say that it wasn't a bad haul for a site surrounded by urban sprawl.

Things are heating up. My guess is that something really special is just around the corner.....
