What a surprise this morning at the watch point at Caldene fields. I had just finished watching vis-mig ( visible migration ) when a bird came in low from the south….it cannot possibly be..it was a ” Kingfisher ”. And more delightful it flew just over my head and carried on north. WOW! I never thought I would record a kingfisher on migration especially when the species rarely move from their territories and the bird is not local to our area.
There was also another good movement of Pink-footed geese with 3 skeins containing 736 birds all came in from the N/E and flew N/W
