Nice collection of additions for the year:
114. Lesser Spotted Eagle
115. Water Rail
116. Long-eared Owl
117. Wryneck
119. Nutcracker
Nice indeed Jos! Id be lucky to see the first four but like you, we are seeing a lot of Nutcracker hazelnut raiders now. Our shrikes are also all fledged and moved off but apart from another Spotted Flycatcher this morning its quiet migrant-wise.
