Sunday 1st November 2015

Fog - it started to clear but then changed it's mind. A very small handful of new migrants on site but not a lot. Worth a mention are 5 Siskins flying around lost in the murk looking for friends, 3 Skylark, single Woodcock, Snipe, Fieldfare & Wheatear, Mottled Umber is a common enough moth in England but one that we have only noted here in six previous years. As the females are flightless are we just getting wandering males or does the species occur here at a low population density ?

8 birds ringed: 4 blackbird, 1 song thrush, 1 goldcrest, 1 goldfinch, 1 greenfinch.
