11/8 - 5 Little Egret flying W over Crook at dusk. My highest count here so far.

14/8 - Chiffchaff calling and second brood Bullfinch juvs out and about.

15/8 - 1 Raven North.

17/8 - Blackcap tacking and 5 redhead Goosander at the Crook.

20/8 - At 06:20 a Hobby flew W over the estate and then started chasing a House Martin. Light not ideal and not seen long enough to age the bird.

Cheers

30/8 - We have temporarily moved to Halton during our ongoing house build.

A lovely crisp bright start around 3C here! Just downstream of the narrow bridge on the exposed rocky inlet area produced 2 feeding Dipper and a Kingfisher. Upstream of the bridge held 4 Cormorant and 2 redhead Goosander. Blackcap & Chiffchaff calling nearby.

I then walked up to Forge Weir and a little beyond. Checked area for Night Heron but low bright sun and mist hampered a proper search. Another Kingfisher calling here along with Grey Wagtail.

Cheers
