Thurlestone Bay

Started at the ploughed field at Huxton Cross at 08.30 and spent 2hrs going through the wader flocks- only 2 species but the numbers are records for the patch in Sept - 175 Dunlin and 130 Ringed Plover. Just after 10.00 a Sparrowhawk spooked them and they all flew off , visits at 13.00 and 16.30 produced no birds.

Yellow Wagtail and a Wheatear  also in the field


Quick visit to the sewage works this afternoon found 3 Spotted Fly , 3 Blackcap and 2 Grey Wagtail

Garden Warbler and a Spot Fly in a South Milton garden this morning
