First juvenile WILLOW WARBLER of the autumn as McMinn's second SWALLOW brood fledges

TUESDAY 27 JULY

A few light rain showers during the morning followed by very humid and cloudy conditions. Dark clouds gathered again early evening. I spent the day searching for Yellow Wagtail in my local Recording Area but without success (these next four weeks are optimum for this species). Autumn is fast approaching now with my local Common Swifts sadly now departed (after an excellent breeding season) and the first juvenile Willow Warbler of the fall appearing.........

CHESHAM McMINN'S (BUCKS)

The nesting European Barn Swallows have now all fledged with the three juveniles all lined up along the wires (second brood)

SHARDELOES LAKE (BUCKS)

Little change apart from a rise in Great Crested Grebe numbers and the first migrant Willow Warbler of the autumn.....

Great Crested Grebe (a third adult has arrived to join the resident pair)
Little Grebe (two pairs and two independent juveniles)
Grey Heron (2)
Mute Swan (4 present - the 3 first-summers and the resident cob)
Mallard (20 with one female accompanying 7 ducklings)
Coot (99)
Moorhen (10 including 4 juveniles)

Red Kite (6 including 2 recently fledged juveniles from one of the park nests)
Little Owl (1 calling from the orchard)
Green Woodpecker
Common Magpie
Pied Wagtail (2 adult males and an adult female on the cricket ground)
European Barn Swallow (family party of 4 birds)
Common Blackbird (male)
Common Chiffchaff (6)
WILLOW WARBLER* (single bright yellow juvenile in the Sallows - the first migrant of the autumn)
SPOTTED FLYCATCHER (adult and juvenile still present in the Sallows at the west end of the lake)
Goldfinch (6)
