Wilstone this afternoon and evening

This afternoon a HOBBY flew over my head from the car park to the reedbed at about 1.40. At about 2.25 a WHIMBREL flew in from Startops, across Wilstone and carried on into Bucks.

Later there were 4+ COMMON SWIFTS over the carpark (6.30pm) and 5 YELLOW WAGTAILS in the horse field behind the carpark, one of which may have been a female blue headed (Ian Williams)

The HOBBY was still present at dusk, along with 60 Common Terns, 5 Black-headed Gulls, 8 Barn Swallows, a drake Shoveler and 3 continuing EURASIAN WIGEON (LGRE & WC)

Three COMMON SWIFTS were present until 1950 hours (WC/SR)
