A minor fall of COMMON REDSTARTS on Quainton Hills

Quainton Hills; after a clear, calm night there was a slight fall on the Hills.

A total of 4 COMMON REDSTARTS was found on the North Slopes and fortunately all were very different in appearance: an adult female with a juvenile male at the bottom of North slopes and an adult male with a not so smart female on the top of the West slopes. The juvenile male still had spotty head markings.

Also noted were COMMON RAVEN and several migrant LESSER WHITETHROATS and WILLOW WARBLERS.
