AGP and some patch stuff

Updates have again been lacking due to lethargy and lack of interest on the patch!

I did manage to twitch the superb moulting Ad American Golden Plover at Edderthorpe on the 13th Sept and managed a couple of record shots;-

meanwhile back at the patch, its been hard going with very little in the way of passage or even signs of migration! highlights of past few weeks are as follows .

Little Egret. 2 on 24th Aug and a single E on 3rd Sept.

Peregrine. 1 N on 26th Aug.

Pintail. 2 N on 8th Sept.

Green Sand. 1 present from 9th sept - still present 15th.

Tree Pipit. 1 SW on 15th Sept.

Wildfowl numbers are slowly building with the WEBS count on 15th Sept revealing 25 Wigeon, 32 Shoveler and small numbers of Teal. Diving duck are much reduced from recently - maybe all at Anglers CP!!

15th also produced a small but enjoyable amount of passage with 126 Mipits, 7 Siskin, 3 Grey wag and 4    'Alba' wags, 2 Swifts and a Skylark - mostly heading SW-ish in c3 hours
