A quick visit to Petounta Point this morning before the Bank Holiday picnickers descended on the area. Migrants seen were two Hoopoe, a male Northern Wheatear, an Isabelline Wheatear, four Green Sandpiper, two Little Ringed Plover, two male Black-headed Wagtail and a male Blue-headed Wagtail. There is still a Reed Bunting in the area as well as plenty of Meadow Pipit, at least four Common Snipe, a Water Rail, up to three calling Black Francolin, overwintering Chaffinch and two Eurasian Skylark. A small group of migrating gulls offshore turned out to be Common Black-headed Gull.
