Hi everyone,

quite a bit of catching up, been away a few days and one thing and another so really behind with the local sightings. A great white egret is still in the area as of 23rd August and has been around about 2 weeks and autumn migration is well underway with Wheatears starting to pass through the Dearne Valley. Anyway on to the updates! Starting with the more recent.
