FIVE TO FIND in July

Bird Watching (UK) - - Your Birding Month -

YES, THE BEST two months of pas­sage (so far) are over. But fear not, re­turn pas­sage has be­gun! July is the early back­wards ex­ten­sion of au­tumn, as far as mi­gra­tion is con­cerned. For in­stance, with waders, the failed breed­ing adults will soon be fol­lowed south by the first ju­ve­niles. There is no ex­cuse to give up bird­ing and turn to in­sect watch­ing (though slot­ting some of that in, too, is al­ways a mood lifter for quiet, warm, sum­mer days). Here are five birds to look for and en­joy this month.
