Was it a Falcon...or was it a Vulcan?



That was yesterday! All is peace again today after several interruptions resulting from the Shoreham Air Show.
A couple of Common Sandpipers, a Spotted Redshank, a calling Greenshank, a single Wheatear and numerous Swallows moving S.W.was the total early this morning. Also 2 Little Grebes have turned up on the Little Lagoon and 7 have arrived on the main Lagoon. They will probably increase in numbers during the next few weeks and remain for the winter, as they usually do.
A walk along the North Wall revealed little else except 30 Black tailed Godwits and a few flyover Yellow Wagtails plus the regular waders. Spotted Flycatchers were reported at the entrance from Vicarage Lane but I missed them! Weather on the change again after a fantastic day yesterday. Engish weather is very interesting!

Pretty sure it wasn't a falcon.

Wasn't the cricket result good though!
