Good migration

I am getting to know the migration dynamics in my new turf.
There are more migrants than I'd expected. Some short walks near my house today produced nice stuff. Most impressive was Red-rumped Swallow migration, with many hundreds hanging around hawking over the lawns, and on active migration, mixed with Alpine Swifts. Lots of Yellow Wagtails and Issy Wheatears in the fields, with Lesser Grey and Red-backed Shrikes on every wire. A flyover Golden Oriole was a nice addition to my garden list this evening.
