PARROTS AND BLOCKERS

Sat 21st was a pretty steady day on the patch with the highlight being 2 R N Parakeets that flew N at 7.35 am, seems likely we are going to see more of these locally! Otherwise slow although 3 Wheatears were new along with our 1st C Whitethroat (2) and singles of both Yellow and White Wags through.

Other migrants were thin on the ground with 20 Mipits N,7 H Martins N and single Swift and Redpoll sp. Also an increase in Reed Warblers to c5 in various bits of Phrag




Always smart birds !






For those interested i have begun inputting all migration and migrant counts onto the TREKTELLEN website  where they can be viewed and compared with dozens of other sites nationally ( including Anglers CP!). pay it a visit it is really interesting for migration buffs.

Not had much time for painting and sketching lately but heres a montage of some of my favourite old 'blockers' for all you old twitchers out there!

Fond memories!!
