Another day of unexpected delights!
Redtail migrants were moving out at very high altitudes.
A pair of Golden Eagles came into the valley from the east (13:27) and gave
us a second day opportunity of good looks (10 minutes) as they gained
altitude to go south.
A Northern Goshawk gave us a good view for a positive ID.
A pair of unexpected Broadwings were observed just after the sun broke
through the cloud cover.
A good Red Shoulder day as well as they also gave the observers close
The last bird of the day … a Northern Harrier.
Many skeins of geese, flocks of blackbirds and waxwings were on the move
