No sightings of Roe Deer, Hare or Badger will be mentioned on this blog throughout the year and links will be removed from other blogs giving the whereabouts of these mammals due to the rising influx of poaching, long dogging and lamping by sick individuals.

Another quick gull check and last few Swifts moving through.
OGDEN 2cy LBB
Very few ad Herring
1 cy Herring;
Several Commons now.
Another late afternoon quick 30 minutes at Ogden to skim through the gulls but a poor low count today with most of the big gulls already moved on. Several Commons, few Herrings and around 30 LBBs along with c 50 Black Headed.
Highlight of the day was 3 Swifts over Foxhill >S in migration mode, possibly the last I,ll get this year. Dread to think what I,m missing at Fly Flatts as the last week in August is usually the peak wader week up there then filtering off during September.
