Shipley View Hex Pools 2/3.9.2015

September 3, 2015 in Latest Patch Sightings by Jim Steele

A few common blue, speckled woods and small whites still about. Southern hawkers at eye level hovering were amazing – one was pre-occupied eating a fly and I managed to get a pic with the mobile phone camera. Gadwalls, tufty and little grebe on the pools. Two swifts going South – getting late. Lots of swallows, house martins and a single sand martin. Bullfinch. Two, juvenile chiffchaff calling.Jim
