It's been a very quiet period for the last few days with very few migrants making their way north. Once again though the rain brought some goodies, with a couple of White Wagtails around the lake and best of all and a patch first a Sandwich Tern that circled the lakes at 9am before heading off north. The latter took this years self-found patch list to the 100 mark.
Arriving home from another visit that proved fruitless I'd just sat down to tot up the species total for Orgreave (161) when Andy rang me with news of a mega on the 'Plains'.
Despite looking as wild as it could ever be it was clearly one of the three escaped birds currently wandering the country.
