Avon Dam

Three roosting  Goosanders this morning were the first here since 9 Jul and the first autumn returns (but from where?). Flew downriver at 0711. Also six Teal and 21 Mallard. On the dam itself, several species making appearances included Spotted Flycatcher and two White Wagtails. No Sparrowhawk or Kestrel today, but on 3 Sep there were two juvs of each perched on the outer 'steps'. Also three Whinchat on the walk back to Shipley.
