Signs of dispersion. Willow Warblers

    Resident Woodpigeon outside the garage waiting for seed
 This juv House Sparrow called in the garage today .


   Fall of Willow Warblers

Slightly cooler today but still far too warm for me and the birds.
A good sign of dispersion today with at least a dozen Willow Warblers working their way along the edge of Foxhill Park at lunchtime, an area where they are seldom found. Also present were several juv Blue Tits and 2 Coal Tits.  By the evening dog walk all had gone.
Plenty small gulls are congregating in the park early morning and Herring gulls are moving through with birds at Ogden, see NKs blog, and Nigel rang me today to say plenty gull activity was taking place this afternoon on a building site near his home and this included Herrings.
Hopefully by the weekend the first August wader sightings will be flooding in.

Nice one with the W warblers by the way - we had a chiffy through this pm and that was it.

And still no sign of Twite , think the Woodies must be scoffing the Nyjer and having Billberries for desert.
