30.7.19 Late July…

The end of July has seen a spell hot settled weather brought to an end by a deep transatlantic low.


Willow Warbler in the old trapping area. I saw my first on the 22nd.

Birding has been confined to the odd morning visit to Beachy Head and throwing bread around at Princes Park. Yellow legged Gulls seem easier to come by this year with even the occasional bird seen incidentally over the headland or over town. For me passerines have been limited to low, single figure counts of Willow Warbler and Reed Warbler.

I’m looking forward to August which is by far my favourite month, numbers and diversity increasing as the month progresses.
