August 1: Oare, UK
Rather jetlagged still after flying back from New Jersey, but I wasn't going to let jetlag stop me from completing my phalarope set! A last-minute overnight trip to Kent means I have all 3 on my life list now!
297. * Red-Necked Phalarope
August 2: Oare, UK
A visit to Oare in the morning on the way back home from the B&B yielded a looong overdue year tick...
298. Common Sandpiper
August 4: Amberley, UK
Another bogey bird finally came off the list at the raptor viewpoint at "the Burgh"!
299. * Grey Partridge
August 5: Seaford, UK
Went to Seaford Head for the Pied Flycatcher migration, and ticked off my most annoying outstanding bogey bird! On a bit of a roll at the moment
300. * European Pied Flycatcher
301. * Lesser Whitethroat
August 11: Titchfield, UK
The lifer streak continues!
302. * Wood Sandpiper
August 18: Isle of Portland, UK
My first ever lifer from a seawatch! Also got plenty of confirmed European Shag sightings to shore up the somewhat dubious record I'm claiming from April!
EDIT: Found a gannet in some old photos from Gibraltar, so not a lifer any more. Ah well, still a year and country tick!
303. Northern Gannet
August 19: Farlington, UK
First time in a while I've gone birding and not got a lifer! Also went to Fishlake, but nothing noteworthy there.
