Migrants are still arriving intermittently in this Arctic weather but I did find the following between SS and East Lane this morning: 2 swifts (my first for the year), 3 swallows, 1 yellow wagtail, 5 sedge warblers, 6 singing common whitethroats, 1 lesser whitethroat, 1 blackcap and a few chiffchaffs. No cuckoo yet but they may be wating for the reed warblers to cross first since they are the cuckoo 'hosts' aroundf here. Clever stuff!
