Stuff to find in July

I had a little think about what we might be looking for in July.  Below are a few reporting rate graphs from BirdTrack showing a few species of interest.

It looks like our chances of bumping in to a Quail are diminishing, especially as we head further in to July:

Two gulls should be at their 'most findable' in July - Med Gull and Yellow-legged.  So if you haven't manged to find these two, get in to some fields and scour some gull flocks.

I put Greenshank in as jammy Bashford has found the only one in Beds this year.  However autumn, from July onwards, is by far and away the peak time for this regular wader to pass through.
