The first day of Autumn hoved above the horizon with a Whistle Stop Visit from our valued friend Dave Foot which brought with it the splash of beauty of this
and ditto accompanied by a little mirth!
Oh dear what can the matter be
locked in a lavatory, they were there from Monday to Saturday,
nobody knew they were there!
Otherwise to herald the first day of Autumn there was another gathering of an estimated 1,000+
on the overhead cables while on the Heath there were free flying
along with this tiny unidentified
before falling among a small group of common and grounded migrant birds
before retracing our steps by heading for the
where both Reed and Sedge were heard but not seen.
not to be confussed with
which wasn't seen but a blink of the eye, flying, with prey
represented here by one from the archive!
We are hoping the trend will continue trroughout the Season.
