August 2012 Review

August has been a fairly quiet month at Westport which is to expected given that it is still technically summer, 64 Species recorded in total for August (4 more than July) including one Westport year tick in the form of a Tawny Owl bringing the year list total to 111 Species. 

6 Species were recorded in August that were not recorded in July these being:

Little Egret
Peregrine Falcon
Common Tern
Tawny Owl

2 Species were NOT recorded in August but were in July these being:

Little Ringed Plover

Hopefully September will see the year list added to as Autumn Migration gets into full swing. The Blast from the past section will update you with what you can hope to see in September (I will update this on Sunday 2nd September when i have time to go through the records). 

Finally a thankyou to CW for providing me the relevant information and to @westportlake1 on Twitter which has also proved a valuable service this month.

Thanks for reading guys, happy birding!
