September 29th

The two pools were again quiet today with only a Common Sandpiper of note. The clear weather this morning again produced some visable migration with 5 Swallow, 2 Skylark and a total of 45 Meadow pipit over. A minimum of 8 Siskin were scattered around the area, although the total number was probably much higher. A nice surprise was a female Teal, present on a small section of river just east of the fishing lodge. Other species of note were 14 Red legged Partridge, 2 Chiffchaff, Kingfisher, 2 Greater Spotted Woodpecker, 1 Green Woodpecker, Grey Wagtail, Coal tit, 2 Jay, Song thrush, Treecreeper and 7 Goldcrest.
