Wednesday 1st October 2014

Overcast conditions promised much but delivered very little. The early morning smattering of Swallows and House Martins south totalled just 246 and 10 respectively along with a small number of both Chaffinch and Goldfinch on the move. Other species of interest were 2 Sparrowhawk, 10 Chiffchaff, 1 Brambling south, 1 Reed Bunting, 2 Yellow and 4 Grey Wagtail south, 1 Stonechat and 7 Wheatear on the common, and the Yellow-browed Warbler was seen again briefly around midday.

14 birds ringed today, of which 5 were Chiffchaff, 2 Robin, 2 Grey Wagtail, and 1 each of Sparrowhawk, Wood Pigeon, Great Tit, Blue Tit and Dunnock.
