I made a quick visit this morning to try and spot the winchats. Although I saw none, I bumped into Pete Lambert who had seen 2 early in the morning. He had also seen 2 Yellow wagtails flying over and a hobby. While we were talking he aslo spotted a raptor on top of one of the pylons skirting the Lee Navigation. Although it was against the sun Pete thought it was a young peregrine, as he managed to see the marking when the sun briefly retreated behind a cloud.
He also reports that spotted flycatchers had been seen by another birder in Stonebridge wood during the week.
So things hotting up!
