17th September

This was an unexpected bonus. The weather was ideal for migrants and even taking photos was difficult, due to the fact the sun was always in the wrong place and the waders were not that close.

Cheers Marc.

I have been enjoying your recent butterfly and dragonfly shots. I cant get that close to the ones in my parks.

3 Spotted Flycatcher (07:20 one eating hawthorn fruits in Barrow Hill Reservoir thicket, area 48; 08:45 one at NW end of Holford Field, area 39/40; 11:30 one at NW edge of Rose Wheel, Queen Mary's Gardens, area 17), 1 Sand Martin feeding over Boating Lake, 3 Swallow S 09:30, 12 House Martin, 19 Chiffchaff, 4 Blackcap.

(The Sand Martin was my first in Europe - they call them Bank Swallows in North America.)

It is good to see that the hirundines are on the move. Sand/Bank Martins are always hard to come by in the park, showers in spring used to be the best time.
