Early August

A few migrants have started to come through Roils Head in the last few days. 7th produced at least 20 Willow Warblers in with the Long-tailed Tit flock, nothing on 8th, 1 Wheatear on the 9th and a distant gull which I tried to turn into an adult Med Gull over Luddenden Valley but it was just too far away to claim. 10th, produced the first Redstart of the Autumn at Roils Head with at least 15 Willow Warblers still present. A Sparrowhawk was mobbed by Swallows and a second Spar was seen carrying prey over Pellon later in the day. Last nights ill advised trip to Fairburn with Roy was very dissapointing.
