House Sparrow Flocks

A few good birds were still about even though it is July

Blue-cheeked Bee-eater - 1
Barn Swallow - 1
Sand Martin - 1

Fourteen Black-winged Silts were present on the settling pond and percolation pond which is a big increase over the two or three that were about at the end of June.

House Sparrows are now building up in small flocks and are the most obvious birds on the local patch.
