A rather uninspiring day today, the KESTREL sitting on a telegraph pole early this am was a classic pose, and the sighting of a SPOTTED FLYCATCHER at the college was a welcome sight, though still no fledglings have been seen.
This afternoons search for a new species around migrant alley failed, it's still a bit early yet though, and with the gloomy, cool, damp weather, the only butterfly seen was a Meadow Brown. While I was walking back home a skein of GREY LAG GEESE flew over, it's always a spectacular sight when a group of geese go over in formation.
I did some garden watching for an hour, and recorded 14 species at the feeders, one noteable absentee was the Starling - where have they all gone ? I did see a couple of small groups early this morning, but I seem to missing a few hundred!
A Handsome male CHAFFINCH was one of the better pics, you wouldn't want to see the others!
