2nd September 2012

Meadow Pipit
 Migration again at a premium today, about 20 Swallows and a single Wheatear is all that could be found following the early drizzle. All the damp Autumn weather has one advantage in so much as it produces fungii, some edible, see the pictures of two different species below. The usual Linnets and Meadow Pipits were about including a juvenile just finishing its moult that was caught for ringing. Plenty of the usual waders with a Bar-tailed Godwit feeding just under the obs as the tide came in.
