Back at last

Wednesday 27 June 2012

Not sure if it's me (probably is) but I have been struggling to log in for the last week. So what have you missed - a new Ewelme bird for the year but not too exciting, a Red-legged Partridge but good to see this Chiffchaff on the upper site.
The Battle Farm survey on 23rd produced Collared Dove and Grey Partridge, both new for the year. The WeBS count round Dorchester lakes on 25th June produced a total of 5 new "year birds" - more an indication of how infrequently I get over there than anything else. For the record they were Corn Bunting, Jay, Linnet, Reed Warbler and Yellowhammer.
Preparations for the BioBlitz at Ewelme on 13/14 July are coming on apace though we could still use some "experts" for ID ing some of the more difficult groups - think we can cope with Birds, Butterflies, Moths and have promises of a Bee and wasp man together with his other half on liverworts.
