Autumn starts tomorrow

Not a lot to report from me the last few weeks as birding activity has been somewhat put on the back burner in an attempt to build the value of brownie points in time for the autumn by getting wom jobs done. Will be out tomorrow on the hills with my first attempt on the returning passerines and maybe a fly over.
My only real autumnal find of the year so far was a group of nine Shelduck flying south over Luton early-ish morning on 6th July between rain showers, presumably a movement from the north of England to the moulting grounds. Not one for the SFYL though which would have benefited more from a couple of Curlews  but the flight of Shelduck is more bizarre, more interesting and certainly more memorable.
