Local birding: Brockholes Wetland LWT - 21st Aug 2009.

Six hours on the patch today was rewarded with an Osprey in the area, showing on+off from 12:05-14:27 when it finally appeared to head off S/SE in improving weather. The juv Garganey remains for the 21st day, 1+ Green Sandpiper in the area and LRP heard. A f/imm Merlin flying south at 15:10 was the first of the autumn.
