A lovely sunny sunday morning on the cliffs made a welcome change from the cool conditions of early may.As early as 0730 there were dingy skippers and green hairstreaks on the wing,but the highlight in langdon hole was my first spotted flycatcher of the year.These once common summer visitors would arrive as regular as clockwork on May 1st,but now are no more than passage migrants locally and not in great numbers at that.It was heartening however to find several pairs of yellowhammers had arrived and were taking up territories in the area.
