August 1st 2010

Had to clear down Dave’s traps this morning and in doing so he passed the 60,000 moth trapped in his garden over the last five years.
Being too late to avoid the crowds at the pond I gave the Sanderling a miss and spent a few hours trawling the Grandborough valley between Sawbridge and Flecknoe with plenty of juvenile warblers around. Seen were 6 Lesser Whitethroats, 5 Whitethroat, 2 Garden and 10 Willow Warblers counted. Also 2 young Spotted Flycatchers at Sawbridge, Hobby and 4 Tree Sparrow at Wolfhamcote and 6 Raven and 11 Buzzard between Flecknoe and Shuckburgh.
