Saturday 28th November 2015

Clear cold start plus the highest tides of the autumn & good early morning views of the moon. Autumn migration is rapidly grinding to a halt with south bound a few laggards in the form of 48 Siskin, 9 Goldfinch, 2 Skylark, 2 Mipit & 2 Stock Doves southbound. In the bushes a handful of new Blackies on site plus another late migrating Goldcrest. Offshore barely bothered with due to the glorious early sunshine in one's eyes but either side of the "currant bun" movements looked lamentable. The gull numbers behind shipping is picking up if the light would be kind enough to allow us to go through them properly.

9 birds ringed: 4 blackbird, 1 chaffinch, 1 goldfinch, 1 greenfinch, 1 house sparrow, 1 goldcrest.
