The Weekend Highlights

On Saturday the juvenile PECTORAL SANDPIPER was on the bund in the morning until 1100 hours when spooked by a Hobby – it couldn’t be found subsequently that I am aware of. Little Stint and Ringed Plover flock and LRP still present today. Two Black-tailed Godwits, Ruff and Greenshank present. 20+ Yellow Wagtails flew over yesterday and a few today. 8 Siskin flew over this morning apparently reflecting another big movement of this delightful finch. A WHIMBREL was on the Drayton Lagoon from about 9:15 to 11am when it then circled and flew into Bucks. Yesterday two Golden Plover flew in and circled but didn’t land. Also yesterday a Spotted Flycatcher was in the Overflow Hedge. Meadow Pipits are definitely on the move now over the reservoirs and Tring itself (Roy Hargreaves)
