I haven't managed to get down on the cliff as much as usual this month, but I am pretty sure that the Terns and Wheatears have gone and the Linnets have also been much less in evidence since the beginning of the month.

Most of the regulars though look to be faring well, although the Kestrels seem to have had to work hard for their meals. The one pictured here was sufficiently in need of a rest to let me come within good camera range.
