Migration over Lathbury

 Working at Lathbury today, I had to take cover from the rather heavy showers every now and then. So standing in a Greenhouse I had the chance to survey the skies. Quite a bit went over today so autumn migration has obviously started, but also some obvious local movement.
 First up a Cormorant, then a Little Egret, 3 Common Terns a few Black-headed and Lesser-Black-backed Gulls and then at lunchtime a group of 8 waders had me scrambling for my bins - these turned out to be Black-tailed Godwits on their way south. I put out the news in case they had gone down at Willen, but nothing came back, so I guess they kept going.
