Lots of insects about in this heat. Had a walk round the farm tonight: 1 Hobby, 1 Little Egret, 10+ Green Sandpiper, 1 Common Sandpiper, 1 Green Woodpecker, 150+ Swift, 40+ Lapwing, 1 Willow Warbler (lemon juv).
All quiet really. For much more interesting reading than the scrapings of my barrel check out Simon's blog about his recent expedition to the Alaskan tundra. For guns, bears and American waders click here: http://shorebirder-waderworld.blogspot.com/
