Holme Bird Observatory 31st July 2019

The biggest surprise today was a Fieldfare in the pines behind the Observatory. More expected were a Great White Egret on the Grazing Marsh, Green Sandpiper in front of the NWT hides and two Wood and two Green Sandpipers on Redwell Marsh.

South Westerly winds, at the end of July, and just what you'd expect, a Fieldfare !
