2nd August (various sites)

Started off at Woolhampton GP's but there was little bird life - yet again no Turtle Dove. It was better with the dragonflies/damselflies with Common Blue Damselfly, 2x Black-tailed Skimmer, 6 or 7 Common Darters and best of all a Migrant Hawker (see left)

Next onto Padworth Lane to see if the Cattle Egret had returned - it hadn't. There was a Brown Hawker here.

Next was Burnthouse Lane but it was so overgrown and the water so restricted that it was difficult to see any interesting birds. A Red Kite did fly fairly low over the area.

Lastly onto Moor Green Lakes where there was a nice little selection of waders including Black-tailed Godwit, 7 Green Sandpipers, a Common Sandpiper, a Dunlin and best of all a Little Stint.
