Tuesday 24th there was a Quail singing from a Barley field on Upton Cow Down between Warminster and Westbury, also at least three Corn Buntings and two Peregrines. Other more common birds included Whitethroat and Linnets.

Thanks WB. It'll be great to keep up with this, as my sister lives in Marlborough and it'll be nice to know what's happening and where when I go to visit her.

As Wiltshire doesn't seem to have a thread on Birdforum, I thought I'd start one.

I thought I ought to add a few links to the other websites within Wiltshire as part of what you are trying to achieve.

If you are into dragonflies the Wiltshire recorder uses Living Record (http://www.livingrecord.net/) as an online recording system.

The highlights of a walk from Shearwater up to Nockatts Copse car park and back this afternoon were Crossbills, a Green Sandpiper on the ponds below the dam, and a Grey Wagtail around the Sailing Club.

A late Swift over Warminster this morning, and at least ten Spotted Flycatchers near Longbridge Deverill this afternoon.

We went to Langford Lakes on Sunday. Several sightings of Kingfishers, which was nice and a few young Great Crested Grebes being fed.

Have had trouble seeing Red Kites, but at last they've shown themselves yesterday and today between Avebury and Marlborough. Didn't see any on the road to Hungerford where my sister says they always hang out - they know I'm here of course LOL.

A Spotted Flycatcher Day - one in our Warminster garden this morning, two in Warminster park near the Boating Lake, and another this afternoon between Broad Chalke village and the Ox Drove. Also a September Swift over Warminster this morning.

Another Hobby over our Warminster garden this morning, and two Wheatears and three Corn Buntings on Upton Cow Down, between Warminster and Westbury, this afternoon.

We've had two male Bramblings in the garden this week. Here's a video grab of the one which appeared today.
