vis-mig in Fulham

Thursday, September 30, 2010

No, really - full on proper vis-mig.  Not just Woodpigeons chuffiing over all about the place that may or may not be from round here but summer birds moving in a southerly direction one after the other.

Swallows they were too, which are pretty unusual in this locale, making it more special.  First six flew over Hurlingham Park to Wandsworth park, then three, then one then three more and two more.  That's like, loads.

Proper visible migration at the end of September.  Lovely.

No, really.

I went into the patch and I stood there and watched birds.  First time for ages, and it was brilliant.  Relatively.

The Yellow Legged Gull was knocking about for twenty minutes or so, and other than that there wasn't much.  A few Common Gulls, the returned Jackdaws in the distance.

And that's about it.

Better than nowt.

do have a picture this time

The one that I couldn't load up, but is now compressed so doesn't look as it did when it wasn't.  Anyway, the patch is wet, the tide is high so there is little going on.

Three weeks in Norfolk.  Not really a birding trip per se, but some birding was done.  Most notably was going to Whitlingham CP and finding 4 Black Terns doing lengths of the water in the late evening.  Much pleased.

I would give you a picture, but for some reason by computer is reluctant to let anything be uploaded.  Once fixed I'll proffer some cliched sunsets etc.

Back to the patch today.  Not expecting Black Terns though...

a week off

This is the blogging equivalent of the out of office reply.  But prettier. 

I'm away from the big smoke this week, preparing for life in the other place.  Did I mention the new patch

I did


Here's a picture of it.  Just in case anyone missed it the first few times.
