October 21st

It was very quiet around the site this morning, with little of note. Although clear skys in the past few weeks have produced good visable migrant totals, very little passed over this morning, given the good weather. Totals included 1 Mistle thrush, 10 Redwing, 2 Song thrush, 2 Meadow pipit and 3 Skylark. Red legged Partridge numbers seem to have built up over the past few weeks with several large flocks in the area; todays count reached 44 birds between 3 flocks. Other species noted this morning were 10 Goldcrest, Kingfisher, 2 Grey Wagtail, Bullfinch, 35 Siskin and a Willow tit.
