it's not over until the fat lady sings

In a tiny wood near Bicester, which always returns good numbers, four were seen today: three males  clashing on the main territory, with one perching for most of the time.
The sightings were made between 3.45 and 4.45 in intermittent sunshine, 17 degrees.
So keep looking folks: it is always interesting to note when the season ends to get an estimate of the flight period. Looking at the UT data over the last 11 years, it has  been 5 to 6 weeks.
