Tresinwen & Strumble (06 May 12)

2 Lesser Redpoll in the garden this afternoon. 

A walk around the headland this afternoon showed that Adrian's passage of hirundines had not abated.  Swallows with a few House Martins and Sand Martins were streaming through.  Despite a lot of effort I could not find anything unusual amongst them.

Also noticeable this afternoon was the significant number of Linnets on territory.  I have always known Strumble to be good for Linnets but this year is remarkable.  Strumble is by far the best place in the UK I have found for Linnets!  (They were singing from almost every gorse bush).
