The warmer weather comes at a price – a south west wind – and any chance of migrants has more or less dried up. Today it was relatively quiet at Kilminning. Residents only. Lots of singing whitethroats and about six sedge warblers, a couple of willow warblers and a blackcap. The summer is pretty much here now. Anxious meadow pipits, all with beakfuls of food seem to be everywhere and the starlings are just about to fledge their chicks too.
