The post breeding passerine flock(s) are beginning to form at the farm. An annual event in late summer. Today there was a 'bird wave' or mixed flock consisting of 20+ Long-tailed Tits, 4 Blue Tits, 5 Great Tits, 3 Blackcaps, 2 Whitethroats, 4 Chiffchaff and 1 Willow Warbler along Cuckoo Lane. They seemed to be feeding on hemlock. Also two juvenile Peregrine around, 20+ Green Sandpiper, 1 Common Sandpiper and 1 Swallow.
