Bank Holiday Fun

A bank holiday: do we tidy up the garden or go birdwatching?  Well fortunately we can do both, because August Bank Holiday traditionally turns up migrants at home.  Today was no exception, with a couple of Spotted Flycatchers feeding from the wires over the field next to us.  We also had a Dark Bush Cricket that needed rescuing from the large amount of hedge trimmings.

Earlier on in the week a Latticed Heath added itself to the house list.  It’s not very heathy around here, so this was presumably a migrant.
