Migrant watch

Monday 20th August 2018

Checking local sites regularly has produced a number of outgoing migrants. Nothing particularly rare or unusual but always good to see on local 'patches'. Over the past few days Whinchats ( 2) continue to  be seen on the 'docklands' at Caldecote. Redstarts have been at Alvecote (1) and Mancetter (2). Today I saw my first Warwickshire Spotted Flycatcher of the year near the Anchor pub, Hartshill. In fact 4 birds were at this site with Lesser Whitethroat, Blackcap and Garden warbler for good measure. Several Ravens were also seen (and heard) in the area.
