Autumn - are we there yet?
I think this signals the beginning of the autumn, here's just one of the many Pied Flycatchers that are hanging around southern headlands at the moment.
Feeding in the small sycamores and along the garden walls at Hurley's Lane on Knockadoon Head yesterday evening. This is one of around 8 birds on the headead itself, I had at least 2 at Hurley's Lane and another one by the caravan park. Mid/late August is perhaps a bit early for these but there seems to have been a big movement of them over the last week across both Britain and Ireland.
