A strong W>5 didnt help matters although it was easing as I left. It took 1 hour to even locate one of the juvs which had got down in a deep rut from the wind with the other bird nearby. They spent most of the time feeding in the vegetation giving just occasional quick views from around 50 yards away then back into the vegetation and out of sight.
As I was leaving a female adult Flava Wag flew over the railings from the smelly wagon park and disappeared towards the SW corner of the field but with time expired, no time to try re locate it.
Well thats July gone which left me with a few specials locally :-
Little Ringed Plover
2 possibly 3 Yellow Legged Herring gulls
3 Yellow Wagtail
Record count of 21 Oystercatchers together.
So all in all not a bad month but now comes the big one, August.
Keep an eye out for the last few Swifts , Ive still been getting them until the last day of July.
