Saturday Birding (5 September)

Foxcote Reservoir; 5:15 a.m tried early to see if any Egrets roosting but none. Very suprised that no gulls roosted at all. Lot of lake covered in surface weed and wondered if this put gulls off? With this easy food supply Coots all over lake, must be one of sites in Bucks with highest count of these.

Calvert sailing lake; 4 Little Egret/2 Common sandpiper

Calvert BBOWT; 2 Little Egret

Quainton Hills; a good overnight influx of migrants.10 Wheatear, 4 North slopes, 2 Conduit hill, 2 Cimber hill, 1 Denham hill and 1 on path near transmitter; female COMMON REDSTART and TREE PIPIT in tree then tall bushes; 1 Spotted flycatcher, 1-2 WHINCHATS, 1 yellow Wagtail, 4 Skylark over, c10 Mipits, all the above seen on North slopes most at ground level (Tim Watts)
