Spotted Flycatcher Wassell Grove Pools 13/8/10

More signs of autumn migration today with a Redstart (female/1s) in the hedgerows near Foxcote pond and a Spotted Flycatcher nearby at Wassell Grove Pools.  40+ Swallows were over the horse paddocks at the pools and i managed to get some sound recordings as the birds hawked for insects low overhead. Also 2 late Swifts were seen flying over the Top Footpath.
