Birdbrain Stuff

Queensbury South

Approx 0935 hrs in a desparate attempt to pick up a local Blackap or Spotted Flycatcher around Foster Park and the golf course. I failed miserably; the woodland migrants were down to 2 Chiffchaff & c6 WW.
Robins were everywhere and I often think this aggressive bird drives out other insect gobblers smaller or the same size as itself.
Song Thrush, 2 Mistle Thrush, 3 Blackbird, 1 Coal Tit, Blue & Great Tits, Chaffinch, Goldfinch & 1 Greenfinch. Male Sparrowhawk seen in flight & GSW calling.

The High Cross Lane fields produced 1 each Skylark, Reed Bunting, Linnet & House Martin. A pr Swallow look to have got a breeding site.
Greenfinch in the trees over the back yard as I complete this post.
