City Challenge update: 112 species!!

A quick update on the city challenge over the weekend. I added two species for the list in the form of Tawny Owl calling near my garden by Western Park on Friday/Saturday night. Then seeing a Lesser Spotted Woodpecker fly-by at again Western Park whilst waiting for Colin Green to pick up to go to London to see the Challenge Cup Final at Wembley!!

Wales vs New Zealand Haka and Response (whole video)

Although the Rugby World Cup is only a month away and New Zealand are the bookies favourites, here is one of the best responses I have every see to the Haka!
Viva Cymru!!!

City Challenge update: 110 target passed! + a bit of vis-migging.

Well yesterday I hit my target of 110 species in the city. The bird to pass the target was a Spotted Flycatcher at Watermead CP South! Cheers to Ken and Dave for finding it.
Earlier in the morning myself and John Hague had another session of vis-migging from the mammoth. Although it was pretty quiet movement wise, we did record Yellow Wagtail, Hobby, 2 Little Egrets and small numbers of Swallows, Martins and Swifts moving through the valley.

City Challenge update: Dunlin and Black Tern!

Juvenile Black Tern at Watermead CP Birstall (also seen at WCPS earlier!)
Over the last week I have increased my city year list by two in the form of a Juvenile Black Tern at Watermead CP South and a Dunlin yesterday at the same site. My city list is now 109 species and just one off my target of 110. Over the coming weeks and the vis-migging season starting yesterday I'm hoping for a few more ticks from the mammoth viewpoint!

Ps: Also it looks like I might be getting back my stolen scope and tripod sooner than later, as the stupid girl tried to sell it on ebay and it is now in the hands of the local police!!
