Another good day of visible migration. A small rise in temperature and a change back to a southerly wind and another burst occurs.
This time migrants included 1 Cuckoo, 1 Grey Plover, 1 Black-tailed Godwit, 4 Golden Plover (first record in two years), 2 Little Ringed Plover, 1 Hobby, 45+ Meadow Pipit, 15 Linnet, 1 Yellow Wagtail, 2 Little Egret, 10 Sand Martin, 2 House Martin, 5 Swallow, 1 Common Buzzard and I missed another Buzzard and also a Red Kite. Also 3 Great Crested Grebe, 3 Shelduck, 40+ Teal, 4 Shoveler, 6 Little Grebe, 40+ Mallard, 30+ Tufted Duck and 2 Green Sandpiper.
Good to see Dave Lambert over the farm yesterday, who visited to sound record the Tree Sparrows (above). Cheers to Dave for advice on the Beddington Nature Reserve Campaign. Visitors are always welcome so just let us know if anyone wants to visit.
Grey Plover: Over at 1210- Perhaps the same bird that Graham saw over Holmethorpe earlier in the day.
