Prospect Sept 13th BBC walk

Results of BBC Thursday field walk, led by Tom Stephenson.

Hi Peter,

We had a great group of about 15 today. The park was a bit slow. It seemed like most of the birds of earlier this week had gone on and only a few arrived. The most activity was in the south of the lake with some birds in the Vale area.

Highlights were Yellow-bellied, Least and Traill's flycatchers and Lincoln Sparrow.

Here's the list.
