Soil Hill

Made a post Little Bustard twitch visit to Soil Hill this afternoon, and it was well worth it. Clocked 30 species, included a few migrants. Highlights; 2 Spotted Flycatchers, a flyover Tree Pipit (Heard only but called twice) and a nice female/immature Bullfinch, which was a patch tick for me.
Other species of interest; two Juvenile Willow Warblers, a number of Whitethroats and what appeared to be a molting male Blackcap.
