The sky was full of Swallows and House Martins heading east and there were numerous Wheatear on the cliff edge. There was an abundance of Skylarks on the longer grass and singing from on high. A large number of passage Whimbrel were initially on the beach and then on the grassy slopes of the cliff.
Close inspection of the Skylark photographed shows it has rather worn plumage, presumably a hard winter.
