Mumbles Hill

Did a 1 hour visible migration watch this morning between 07:00 and 08:00, followed by a short walk around the hill.
Totals were: swallow 81, sand martin 1, meadow pipit 27, tree pipit 6, pied wagtail 7, yellow wagtail 1. Swallow movements increasing as I left.
Also: peregrine (first locally for a little while), shelduck (4), and a handful of common migrants in the bushes including chiffchaff (6+), willow warbler (3), blackcap (4), whitethroat (2). A reed bunting also present. Chiffs moving around with flocks of long-tailed and other common tit species.
