Farmoor etc

Decided to do Farmoor this afternoon as not been there for a while and new freedoms started today. Pretty quiet, highlights included the long staying White-fronted Goose, a passage of 125+ Sand Martin heading west, a single Swallow, plenty of Chiffchaffs, a couple of Blackcaps and 11 Goldeneye. Ebird list HERE

Also did a session by the Ickford Bridges yesterday evening in honour of the longer days, no summer migrants but still quite a few Fieldfares hanging around there. Ebird list HERE. Looks like Ebird hotspots have been set up for various local sites that currently I group under Worminghall area so will start using these but will add any new species to my lockdown area too. 

The moth trap was quiet, just an Oak Beauty and Common and Small Quakers.
