The walk into work and back again was the only chance I got to visit my patch today. I was busy early this afternoon, and later went down to help the local bird ringer clear the ringing site ready for a ringing seasion on sunday morning.
It was still a profitable, early morning walk in though, as a LITTLE EGRET flew over Migrant Alley, and onwards over the College, a good addition to the months list, and the first one ever recorded in any July. I have seen a Little Egret in every month this year now, bar January, It could well be the same bird going to and fro!
Up early tomorrow for a full walk round my patch, lets hope for an early Autumn migrant!
