Migration in full flow.

 A very confiding Common Sandpiper was in the outflow. There have also been up to  5 Grey Wagtails and 4 Yellow Wagtails recently.

 Fly over Curlew.
 Two Swifts were over the res today 29th August along with all 3 hirundines.
 Little Egret in the top pool today.
A probable first winter male Redstart was a good find by John today, again in the popular location of Redstart Hedge! There were good numbers of other warblers including Whitethroat, Lesser Whitethroat, Willow Warbler and Chiffchaff. There were also 4 Spotted Flycatchers in the fields below the dam. A Hobby was also watched chasing hirundines.
A Spitfire was also migrating!!
