Quiet days

The birds have slowed down for the summer and we are in the quiet period before southwards migration starts. Seems strange to be thinking of birds heading south for the winter when it’s the start of August and we have had several days here with the humidex values in the mid 40s but that’s the way things are. There have been several reports of early warblers on the move (Tennessee mostly) and the shorebirds will be arriving soon – though how many we see here I don’t know as the river water levels are still high and exposed foreshore is not as plentiful as some years.
