13th September.. Last few days

Not much to report over the last few days. A Whinchat on Wednesday was as good as it got for migrant passerines with large parties of Meadow Pipit and a Yellow Wagtal through. A small party of waders hurtling through Orgreave on Friday morning comprised of 3 Dunlin and a couple of Little Stints which seemingly kept going south. However walking around the smaller lake an hour or so later revealed that they had in fact dropped in out of view. Unfortunately a lapse in concentration saw me kick them up totally oblivious to their presence.

With the obvious shortening daylight hours, this week may see the last of my pre-work sorties until March!!
