15/07/22 First Juvenile Yellow Leg of’22

Probably my latest date for a number of years but an anticipated moment in the birding calendar for me. This years approach to searching for juv YLGs has been very much laissez-faire and today I had 2 birds fly past us on whilst swimming at st Margarets beach.

I chased after the second bird and caught up with it on the water a kilometer or so East of where we’d pitched up, though it remained at distance on the water.

Very little else to report other than my first Yellow Wagtail over west of the ‘Autumn’ this morning along with c30 Swallow and a handful of Swift. 2 Black Redstart were along the cliff tops first thing, in fact; Im seeing them everywhere at the moment!
