A Quiet Day!

 A much quieter morning around The Point, though still some Hirundines and Meadow Pipits going through, a few Siskins, 3 Wheatears, a Common Redstart trapped along with a few Goldcrests and Chiffchaffs, a single Marsh Harrier hunting the area and Black Redstart on the perimeter fence.
