Hi Folks! It seems that our wonderful technical folk have got the new and improved Community platform up and running. And earlier than expected too! So, to give it a bit of a test, here are today's sightings...

As ever, sightings news from Bolton Ings came via John Seeviour and can be found here. Thanks John.

Jeff Wragg reported from Broomhill Flash that there were twenty-four snipe, one jack snipe, six red-legged partridge, a sparrowhawk and forty-two redwing present today. Thanks Jeff.

And that's about it for news except that, as the sun set this evening, around a thousand starling ended a beautiful, bright autumn day with a small murmuration.

Until next time.
