Patch Tick !!

Before anybody gets to excited it was a Ring-necked Parakeet. Still, a ticks a tick so i was well chuffed with this bird doing a circuit of the Wetlands before heading of towards Wakefield park. There has been a couple of reports recently from the park but i checked late morning with no success so who knows!?

There was another Osprey at Wintersett early morning but sadly it departed to the NE so missed us by a fair distance - bugger!

Other birds of note included 28 Golden Plover, 6 Goosander, several Swallows and 3 House Martins.

Also still present where 2 LRP with the Lapwings and the Green Woodpecker.

A bit of migration watching late morning was fairly unproductive but a couple of Buzzards and upwards of 6 Sparrowhawks were seen displaying over the surrounding woodlands.
