Quiet September day

Juvenile Kingfisher- Juvenile aged by dark breast band and dark on feet, the forth juvenile we have caught this autumn
Migrant Hawker 
Autumnal Rustic 
Beaded Chestnut

Migration has dropped off quite a bit. Very little on the deck and bushes- 4 Yellow Wagtails over, 100+ Swallow, 6 Green Sandpiper,1 Snipe and a few Chiffchaffs. About 7-8 Jays about including 5 moving south this morning.
A few moths last night including Autumnal Rustic (new one for me) and Beaded Chestnut.

Interesting ID tip on the KF, there has been a mobile and noisy bird on my local pool so i shall go 'fo(u)rth
and ascertain its' age....

BTW am currently following the blog of a Finnish birder on the Azores, are you off there shortly?

P.s. beware it reads like the Gendarme from 'allo, allo'!

I'm out there the week after next. Been following Kari's blog too- he was straight in with a Bobolink but I think its east winds now
