There really is a lack of migrants around , which is quite depressing. In reality there is only about another week to go before it starts to dry up.
Cackling Canada Goose: still present.
Common Shelduck: the family of 13 are/were still alive and kicking at 2.00pm.
Swift: 14 were over the lake this afternoon.
House Martin: 8 birds were feeding low over the lake in a shower.
Who am I?
The family at the southern end of area 7.
The expecting western bank couple.
A nest relief has to be carried out fairly sharpish in case gulls or even the nearby Coots feel like feasting on their eggs.
The photo below shows just to show how small a Cackling Canada Goose is.
