With it being the middle of August, I have started walking around the Lockwood before work. So far the only notable migrants being many Willow , and a couple of Garden Warblers, a few Yellow Wags this morning and a trickle of Swifts. Although AW had a Spotted Flycatcher in the Water works and Twitter tells me that PW has just found a Pied there too.
Yesterday whilst scanning the Bomb crater field for a returning Whinchat, One of three Juvenile Kestrels landed on the fence two meters in front me.
After blasting it with the camera I spent five or so minutes sat down, watching it through bins.
A deranged dog eventually flushed it.

Nice pics Jamie ! Our Whinchats are leaving Geltsdale around now – many with colour rings fitted over the last couple of years. Let us know if you find any – you would be the first ever ! Btw – Geltsdale HHs on 6 o’clock news and R4 pm prog today. Cheers
