Welcome to the July issue of The Harrier

Posted August 1st, 2017 at 2:18 am in Welcome

Greg Bradbury took this photo of a pair of Wood Sandpipers at RSPB Bowling Green Marsh on July 30th. If you are in the vicinity, call into the hide as they could well still be there. It's now that time of year when early migrants are starting to return to our coasts. There are good numbers of Black-tailed Godwits to be seen, some still in summer plumage, and there was a Spotted Redshank at the weekend at Goosemoor. The weekend before, I was surprised to see two Whimbrel on the coast at Prawle. So, it's only just August and the autumn migration has started - just 145 days to Christmas...

This is the last issue of The Harrier in its current form. We're now aiming to bring you news more regularly on a dedicated Harrier website. More information will follow in a few days. In the meantime, enjoy this issue and catch up with all the news from July.
