It's time for the UKC biannual migrants thread! (Well alright it was time for it weeks ago but I just didn't get round to it, sorry.)
Having failed to fit in my usual Solway trip for the pink footed and barnacle geese I'm doing very poorly so far. In fact I only saw my first redwings this weekend, and still haven't seen a fieldfare :(
Couple of whooper swan and waxwing sightings being reported locally but I haven't tracked any down myself yet.
Up until late September I was still seeing swallows, which led me to think they were struggling to get up to the weight needed to fly south given the poor summer for insects.
How's everyone else getting on?
