Another productive visit as we head into the Autumn migration period. 4 new ticks for the patch. These included a Common Moorhen, a Common Quail, a Common Ringed Plover and a European Turtle Dove. This brings the site total up to 91 species. I managed to tick 37 species during the visit which is the highest weekly count since I began recording.
Common Ringed Plover
A single European Turtle Dove, seen in the company of some Eurasian Collared Doves
An Ortolan Bunting. One of two birds seen. I last recorded these birds here in Week 10 (April)
Little Grebe. A few of these seem to have settled on one of the ponds recently
A Yellow Wagtail with a juicy snack
A Lesser Sand Plover
