 Adult Mediterranean Gull

 Red Kite
 Black-tailed Godwit
 Shelducks- the young are flying now

Birds on a summer birding blog! Whatever next?
We decided to declare today the first day of the autumn as there was certain visible migration. We had a Black-tailed Godwit on the Northern Lake, the first Common Sandpiper for the autumn, 2 LRP, 3 Little Egret dropped in, 1 Red Kite flew west, a Buzzard flew east, 2 juvenile Peregrines, 1 Hobby, 4 Kestrel,  a family party of 6 Swallow were circling and calling, 4 Sand Martins flew through and also an adult Med Gull.
The Shelduck chicks are flying around now and the first juvenile Black-headed Gulls are in, as are the first returning Common Gulls.
