A late.

72: Sand Martin

through, this morning.
Well, had hopes I might get one in this period, and indeed it transpired, three Sand Martins north yesterday, third record on my land. Also male Red-backed Shrike back atop the shrike pile.

No Common Buzzard yet?

No, nothing even close, a pair of Long-legged hold territory locally and wonder if they keep other Buteos out?

The Laughing Doves in our garden, now have fully fledged young, they could have 4-5 broods on that timetable!
A species definitely on the up Andy!
I imagine you’ll have to wait till the autumn migration season for Common/Steppe Buzzard now?
Still no sightings of Red backed Shrike here, just the heard only one last week.

My first one arrived about 11 am yesterday, way late
I’m expecting fewer than in recent years anyway after the catastrophic breeding results here last year, mind you, I’m just starting to doubt my heard only one last week, I was a bit poorly and the goats in the field make an RBS-like coughing call sometimes!

A surprise this evening, a

77 Spotted Flycatcher

enjoying the insect population explosion we’re having. We see them every year on post breeding passage but this is the first we’ve had in Spring!
