First Wheatear of the year

A frosty start to the day but being the first week of April it was time to dust off the spring traps, buy some new Waxworms (Pets at Home finest £2.49) and head to Mwnt looking for migrants.This week last year there were large numbers of Wheatears on the headland every morning but rather a different story today. Just one Wheatear ringed out of only two seen and they soon moved on as soon as the early dog walkers appeared.The headland was generally quiet and even the resident Chough and Kestrel didn't put in an appearance.
