Leisurely West Coast Migration

Present AM, RG and CG.
Part of the team are exploring the migration potential of a West Coast site called Kirksanton..  It is where the western most mountain of the lakes, Black Combe, meets the Irish Sea. In certain conditions large visual migration can be seen,  At the time of writing this blog they are having a third ringing session.  Two sessions in  September have produced the following. I have a feeling they will be lucky  today

excellent list. I have just returned from a trip and spotted Rednecked Avocet, Crimson Chat, Owlet nightjar and Greenshank and a breeding pair of Major Mithcells..just as examples.
