Autumn migration in DC drawing to a close
With autumn migration slowing, there were a number of surprising late migrants - several species of warbler and Indigo Bunting setting off the ebird alarms! Eastern Meadowlark was more typical, and always a treat in DC, while sparrows are starting to build in numbers and the first Dark-eyed Juncos have arrived. The Bell's Vireo, resisting the urge to move on and avoid the cold snap, was seen on-and-off throughout the weekend.
White-tailed Deer has become very common (as has Rabbit - even one in the garden!!), and is commonly found in the Maintenance Yard in the evenings, this young buck quite oblivious to my presence.
While over in Kenilworth Park these deer were a little more cautious, pausing only momentarily to peer through the morning mist before scampering across the fields and out-of-sight.
