Early autumn

The Cuckoo Lane tit and warbler flock appears to be growing; about 20 or so birds- Great and Blue tits, 4-6 Blackcap, Wrens, Dunnocks, 2 Whitethroat and 1 Lesser Whitethroat. Also a juvenile Great Spot which presumably was the same bird in my garden earlier today. A few finch family parties around- Linnets, Greenfinches and Goldfinches.
Young gulls are increasing in numbers- the juvenile Herring and LBB Gull have joined the young Black-heads.
One of the juvenile Peregrines was around- presumably one from the recently fledged Sutton birds.
Jim's Pit continues to attract plenty of waders; 20+ Green Sand, 1 Common Sand, 4 LRP (pic), 40+ Lapwing and also 10+ Pied Wagtail.
