Lutley Wedge 01/05/11 (8°c) Sunny with scattered high cloud. Windy (NE)➝(E) F3/4

Lutley got in on the large overland Barwit movement of the last few days this morning, with a superb flock of (18) Bar-tailed Godwits flying high ➝ENE at Wassell Grove Pools at 07.46am (only the 2nd record at Lutley Wedge). Otherwise it was fairly quiet migration wise, in the strong and blustery Easterly wind with a trickle of Swifts moving through (the first this year)  and 2 Yellow Wagtails of note.

Great Barwit record Craig. I will have to keep more of an eye on those skies over Shenstone.
