Sunday Roundup

A walk around Streatleybury (south of Streatley village) yielded one COMMON REDSTART and two SPOTTED FLYCATCHERS. Also, the bramble bushes were teeming with Lesser Whitethroats, Common Whitethroats, Garden Warblers and Chiffchaffs.A Grey Partridge was flushed from the meadow (ps: Allan Cutts found a Common Redstart here last Sunday) (per Darren Thomas)

Meanwhile, Darin Stanley located a juvenile COMMON REDSTART at Galley Hill, just NE of Luton, and Pip Housden a total of 6 WHINCHATS at the Sandy Smith Nature Reserve, Clophill. At Deacon Hill, Pegsdon, 3 NORTHERN WHEATEARS were seen, whilst at least 1 WHINCHAT remains by Luton Airport.

The 8 Egyptian Geese remain at East Hyde, whilst SPOTTED FLYCATCHER there was a real rarity (per Mike Russell)
