Saturday 10th September

Had a few things to do today which involved going near to Sutton Park were it was rather quiet apart from three Redstart which showed well.

On the way back I drove through Wishaw were most birds were keeping their heads down with the wind although I did see a Wheatear.

I wandered around Shustoke late afternoon bumping into a couple of old friends that were connected to my sons football team many years ago. Bird wise it was quiet today as there was a strong south-westerly wind blowing. I did have a male Peregrine and there were 40 or so Linnet off Bixhill Lane.

Wildfowl numbers have dropped in the last week probably due to the wind picking up. However, I had my first two Pochard of the autumn today.
