Beagle And Bins(er)
Like a couple of searchers, Lils and I did an early turn around last night's venue, and it was a little more productive. No Buzzards, but a Kestrel hovvering to the north of the new NF&R building, and over the other side of the access road from the building site entrance, at least two Chiffchaffs were chiffing and chaffing, as they do. Hods of Woodies to the east, and likewise Jackdaws, and so to the ever decreasing flashes. A couple of dozen BHGs were with three dozen Lapwings, two Dunlin and a Redshank. Predictably, one or two Pied Wagtails were taking advantage of the ever increasing mud islands. To the north of the Sub-Station, another Chiffy, and above it, House Martins. On leaving, a flock of a dozen Long-tailed Tits flew in behind the entrance sign.
