Some September birds to watch out for

                      7 Little Grebe turned up at Ogden Sept 2013

             Soil Hill played host to a Short Eared Owl Sept 2012

   Ogdens Yellow Browed Warbler Sept 2012

         1 of 2 Turnstones at Fly Flatts Sept 2013.

With August almost gone and September upon us above are just some of the interesting birds that have turned up in previous Septembers.
There is still a chance of waders although August was the peak month and with the weather conditions being as they have been the birds have continued on and passed us by.
Anything can happen during September so check out all the tit flocks , thrushes and wildfowl as the winter birds will soon be around.
Mid month is the time to watch the skies for skeins of Pink Footed geese overhead and if you,re into visible migration now,s the time to start counting.

A pre work check on Roper Lane/ Old Guy Rd found very little in the mist and no sign of geese in the lower fields.
2 Wheatear were on the cricket pitch along with 4 Pied Wagtails and around 40 Starlings.

A report today from NK that the Raggalds Flood is beginning to hold water at last.

Still time for a Yellow Wag. (?)

I hope we get at least one Yellow Wag in the next 4 weeks or so. This appears to have been a very lean year for them around these parts.
