Stanwell Moor - 8 July 2013

ESA and RMA joined us for the evening, hoping for some Starlings,Sand Martins and Swallows. But the evening was rather slow with just three birds in advance of the roost - although one was a 4F Reed Warbler with BP4, Y980125, from the group's Great Meadow Pond site. This bird had only been done in June as a breeding female and is apparently already on the move.

The Starlings put on bit of a show but stayed well clear of the nets.


We attracted a small roost and managed to add six more hirundines to the season's total.

Total: 7 (1)
Sand Martin - 2
Swallow - 4
Reed Warbler - 1 (1)
Chiff-chaff - 1
