Tuesday 3rd July

The early autumn passage has been continuing the last couple of days, enough so to warrant another posting. Yesterday there were 4 LITTLE RINGED PLOVER and today they were still present and joined by two COMMON SANDPIPER. In addition there were 1 BLACK-TAILED GODWIT and an OYSTERCATCHER earlier in the day (per Ian Smith) though they'd gone come the evening. The LITTLE GULL was reported again (per Ian Smith) though it seems to be roosting elsewhere as it's not been around for a while when I've been making my evening visits. A couple of juvenile skylarks hiding in the long grass in the gloom of dusk gave me some excitement for a while until I worked out what they were!

There have been up to 6 little egrets around of late
