Harsh voice here too Wari, but Nutcracker not Caspian Tern (still I can dream...).
August is when things start to move again, I've seen the first Common Redstarts and Firecrest since spring, plus just now a smart
76 Willow Warbler
I usually see or hear one or two on Spring passage but missed them this year.
Another feature of early August is the appearance of non-breeding Hobbies, four different individuals in the past three days,they look like 2nd year birds to me (see photo of one of them).
