A trip to Landsort for four days in May was a highlight of the spring, though weather conditions were far from ideal for migrants it was still a thoroughly enjoyable week. A male Hobby feeding low over head was a breathtaking sight on the last day. Wheatear were everywhere, always a great bird to draw at this time of year. Whinchats were seen daily in small numbers and were the subject of several sketches.
A more detailed report of the species seen is posted on my blog;
