Weekend Highlights

A summary of Recent Sightings - 21-23 August


On 22 August, a late morning visit produced 2 SPOTTED FLYCATCHERS, 8 LESSER WHITETHROATS (all at the base of the North Slopes in a dead Hawthorn bush), 3 NORTHERN WHEATEARS (all in East Hollow) and 3 COMMON REDSTARTS (singles in Transmitter Field, halfway down the West Slopes and at the top of the South Slopes).

By late afternoon, NORTHERN WHEATEARS had increased to 5 (with 4 together on Denham Hill and another by Manor House), with 4 BULLFINCHES and a COMMON WHITETHROAT near the church

At 2300 hours on 21 August, Colleen and I saw a POLECAT race across the road by Quainton Railway Centre.
