So Long September

Its been a pretty poor September so far for me. Highlights at Walthamstow were 4 Wood Sandpipers (v rare here!) that flew over David Bradshaw, myself and n0 5 on the 6th.  A trip down to Beachy over the second weekend of the month was pretty quiet except small numbers of things like Redstart and Whinchat etc, altough I did find a 1cy Caspian Gull above birling gap, which is only the second record for the headland.

Since then i’ve had a few yellow-legged gulls on the river and things like Spotted Flycatchers and yellow wagtails at Walthamstow, not much to get you really going but what do you expect with this glorious weather!

Who gives a shit anyway? Because on Friday at midnight I get the train to penzance and then the Scillonian for another 2 weeks with the gang, bashing about the scillies looking for who knows what? Not much by the look of the weather with the Azores high firmly in place… I’m an optimist though so hopefully the following blog post will be memorable.
