A pretty quiet day around the patch bird wise with 8 Swallows and 20 House Martins present. There was no sign of any Swifts today, so they may well have already started their migration south to Africa.
Also seen today were a ♀ Sparrowhawk, 2 Kestrels (a ♀ and a juvenile) and 3 Common Buzzards (2 adults and a juvenile). The juvenile Buzzard was a different bird to that seen last week and was a very grey colour. It also had a gammy leg that seemed to bow out causing it to be unable to stand very well.
