More than half way through the month and the September list is already on an impressive 102 species with the year list creeping up to 140. However some work is still required to reach the September average of 108.67 species (the lowest total being 103 last year, the highest 113 in 2016)
Possible additions over the next 13 days include (year ticks in bold):
Garganey, Marsh Harrier, Osprey, Oystercatcher, Whimbrel, Redshank, Greenshank, any terns (especially Black and Common), Lesser Spotted Woodpecker, Yellow Wagtail, Skylark, Rock Pipit, Stonechat, Redwing, Fieldfare, House Sparrow, Siskin, Lesser Redpoll, Yellowhammer
There is an interesting period of weather in a few days time that should hopefully produce positive conditions for movement - warm SE winds on Friday and Saturday followed by warm SSE winds with rain on Sunday and a direct southerly with rain on Monday - I would expect Black Tern as a minimum!
Upton Warren Life List: 197 (latest: Glossy Ibis)
