Wednesday 7th September

I had another morning walk around the Reservoir again today and the first bird I saw was new for me at Shustoke, it came in the form of a Barnacle Goose! There was also a Spotted Flycatcher in the hedgerow near the Water Treatment Plant. I also saw several Blackcap, Whitethroat, Chiffchaff and a single Swift.

Hirundine numbers were high with 400+ House Martin, 200 Sand Martin and 150 Swallow.

A belated report that a Whinchat was seen in the field towards the railway crossing on the August Bank Holiday.
