Even by 07:00hrs the heat of the day sent most sensible animals into shelter, leaving me with not much to find! I did however get to see the first YELLOW WAGTAIL (61) of the Autumn as it flew over Migrant Alley, calling as it went. A CORMORANT was also seen flying over, but not much else was seen apart from a HERRING GULL and a couple of parties of SWIFTS.
Three KESTRELS were on the Greenhouses, a SPARROWHAWK was mobbed by at least 30 angry SWALLOWS, but only one BUZZARD was seen today, no sign of the young one over at the Wet Woods.
By 10:00hrs the heat of the day sent me into the shade of my garden, little was now being seen out in the fields, even the bees had stopped visiting my garden nectar border, it was so hot!
