Wheatear 05-07-2007 and Glovershaw 2007

Good one Shaun
It will at least be dispursal.... This wet weather will I think induce a lot of early movement??Dave

PS I will post this string of mails on the web, so folks know what we will be doing when the season starts.

That's fine David.
Here's an early record for you to consider for viz mig. Today at Gill Beck on Barden Moor I had a juvenile Wheatear. It was on its own feeding in an area that had been burned off this spring leaving it barren soil amongst the black twigs. I do not think this bird has bred there as the habitat is unsuitable, no rabbit holes or boulders/ walls. There are some fairly nearby though. No adults with it, so probably the first sign of movement? What do you think?

Hi Shaun Yes please.... Totals with start and end times would I think be best for the web page. If you should get any big rushes then a 15 min breakdown would be interesting to show just how many birds move through in what part of the morning, but not as a general rule. If you were to set your counts out to match the others I put on then i could faithfully cut and paste your results on to the web page to match all of the rest. Have just had 1/2 hour out locally in Wilsden and as expected Swifts are on the move here after the rain.

Best Wishes

Hello David
Starting from August, I intend to do viz migging, not at Paul Clough, but return to Glovershaw/ Birch Close area. Do you want any data of my sightings this year and if so in what form? I can record you sightings for every 15 mins, or hourly, or total, whichever is more useful. Having retired I expect to get out more often this autumn but stay local. Rod and Brian were covering Paul Clough last year.
