Good numbers of swallows and martins passing through , meadow pipits everywhere , 7 wheatear , 3 goldcrest , 2 kestrel , several pied wagtail feeding among the sheep , plenty of crows and magpies , tit flock, 1 weasel , 1 grey squirrel , it maybe worth doing a visual migration count shortly , maybe two dates one for the summer migrants leaving and one for the winter visitors arriving anybody interested ?

Thats a good idea post some dates on forum. I allready do regular vis mig around the arley reserve area at this time of year it fits in well with the ringing sessions

And apparently Andy Makin and Simon Warford saw a juvenile Red Kite on the Lancs side on Saturday morning, during a vismig watch.
