Boulmer birder

Some 'digibinned' shots from Pegswood moor this morning.

Text message from Stewart this morning to let everyone know that his computer is not working at the moment and that he will be moving later in the week so he will be 'off air' for a while.

First day off for a while but I don't go far on bank holidays because of the roads being clogged up with traffic. Walked across to Pegswood moor. A few birds around. A small flock of Curlew held one Whimbrel in the fields to the west beside Howburn woods. Eight Oystercatchers around the sunken lake. No other waders but some wildfowl flying west...3 Grey lag geese and 4 Gadwall. A male Wheatear was also on the big boulders beside the Oystercatchers. My third at this site this year as the two a couple of weeks ago were both females. A dozen or so Skylarks and Meadow pipits singing here. On the other side of the road 4 Gadwall and a Moorhen on the pond. In the woods more Blackcaps have arrived and dozens of Chiffchaffs are singing.

looks like you dont have to travel too far to pick up some decent migrants.
