seymouraves said:Hi ref warblers in October- this is fairly normal at coastal migration points especially North east and south west- I am still regularly seeing Blackcaps, Lesser WTs and Chiffchaffs at the moment and Willow warblers last week-
Agreed, but those species are known for later migration than wood warblers in this specific example. Re willow last week, and SW, I agree and did make the point re "South coast increases the chance of seeing late migrants". Re house martins, I have two still coming back to roost in their former nest here.....or at least they were til Thurs. Chiffchaffs are all over the place here still too, and that has happened ever since we moved here in 2012. Blackcaps are in the garden most weeks all year, though they do 'disappear' around this time for a few weeks, presumably when most Summer visitors and migrants pass through and before replacements from eastern Europe arrive.
