Today though there was quite a lot more happening. Steve and Colin were out in the morning and had Common Sandpipers at the Reservoir, along the canal and two at the Borrow Pit pool. At the Borrow Pit they had an Osprey fly over south east at 08:22, which continued over the M40 and out of view so it probably didn't stop. A Spotted Flycatcher was also at the back of the Borrow Pit, perched up on the deer fence briefly.

This evening John had a look at the gathering gulls and managed to pick out a second calendar year Yellow-legged Gull.
