Tripit Hazard

Highlights this morning included an off-passage short-eared-owl which was flushed and then headed off high to the North, a low-flying tree pipit and a male whinchat.

3 each of common and lesser whitethroat.

Northward passage of mipits, siskins and redpoll spp. (faintly-audible only- very high). Sand martins, swallows and 3 or 4 house martins moving also.

4-5 little-ringed plovers, a green sandpiper, four gadwall and two shoveler were also present in the parish.

Willow warblers present but fairly low numbers-- none in Freeman's Woods!
