A nice potter about this morning, 6:30 - 10am

I've been keeping records of swifts, swallows and Martins departure dates since 2009 and the latest swift I've personally seen in one year was on August 28th 2015 and this year has now broken that record as there are still a few about. On the 30th.

So highlights this morning include:

Swift
Gadwall
Teal
8x goosanders
Pheasant
60? lapwings
Common sandpiper
Great black backed gull, but very mobile
2x Rooks passing through close

Ta!
