Deepdale Farm - 12th August 2022

 We planned for an early finish today with temperatures set to climb. We decided to give this site a try as the winds were blowing from the north east and with birds on the move there was a chance of catching one of the less usual species.

The catch was spread over seven unexceptional species, however a Fieldfare flying from the direction of the sea at 11:15am was unexpected and a very early date for this winter migrant.

One of 6 juvenile Wrens. They seem to do very well here.

Juvenile Robin
