October 16th

This morning saw another high count of 20 Goldcrest. One of the areas that was most productive on Tuesday for goldcrests was not checked today, therefore the actual number of birds present on site may be much higher. At least 2 Coal tit were present with the groups of Goldcrest. There seemed to be an increase in visable migration taking place this morning, compared to that of the previous few days, probably down to a light north westerly wind. Birds passing over included 40 Meadow Pipit, 18 Skylark and 8 Redwing. Other birds noted this morning were 13 RL Partridge, 20+ Siskin, Green Woodpecker, Kingfisher, 3+ Bullfinch and an adult Herring Gull.
