October 14th

This morning saw a total of 21 Goldcrest around the site. Birds were scattered around in small groups. This raises the question when will Shustoke's first Firecrest and Yellow Browed Warbler's be? Firecrest is surley long over due having never been recorded at the site. With so many Goldcrests around it must only be a matter of time. 3 Coal tit were present mixed in with the Goldcrest flocks. Visable migration today included 16 Meadow pipit, 5 Skylark and 3 Redwing. Other species noted were 1 Pochard (drake), 2 grey Wagtail, 15+ Siskin, 1 Treecreeper, 16 RL Partridge and Sparrowhawk.
