Queensbury Vis Mig

A better start to the day with grey skies inviting some movement early doors.
As I let the dogs out at 0600hrs a Curlew flew overhead very high >W and calling as it went.
Shortly after that Common gulls moved over >S in good numbers with around 40 on the football pitch.
Mipits and Skylarks were in small numbers and 2 Linnets headed >SW.

The rest of the day was quiet other than small gull numbers rising in the park now with 15 BHGs and 9 Common at midday.

1 Curlew.........................>W
31 Common Gulls..........>S
2 Skylark......................>SW
14 Meadow Pipit...........>SW
2 Linnet.........................>SW
7 Swallow.....................>S

Anyone had a local Sept Swift yet ?

How about a Whimbrel next on your early morning saunter ?

Another couple of weeks and it should be time to check the cross lane marsh field regularly.

Thought the Curlew was a Whimbrel at first Dave being a short billed job but then it called, another juv.

Tracys Wheatear pics came from that area Nigel.
