Cassiobury Park (4th May)

Got another text from Ian saying a female Wheatear was down at the usual spot at the wooden benches.  My luck was in again and I was pleased to relocate the Wheatear still running about in the same spot.  Despite a few dogs making some disturbance it was rather tolerant and only flew up onto one of the metal bins when a dog ran straight for it.  It was still present when I left at 16:00pm.  Also of note was a fly-through Swift heading in a NNW direction.  So far it has been an amazing year for Wheatears and am very pleased to have seen 8 of the 10 birds which have turned up so far this year (although much of the credit should go to Ian, thanks Ian)!
