Tuesday 17th November 2015

Loads of fungi across the whole site at the moment due to mild wet conditions. On the move southbound 101 Siskin, 41 Goldfinch, 12 Chaffinch, 10 Mipit, 9 Linnet, 5 Redpoll, 4 Stock Dove & Brambling. On site a couple of new British race Songies, Blackcap, Redwing, Fieldfare & the semi-resident Rock Pipit on the point. The last couple of Blackcaps we have ringed have been like porky the pig whereas this mornings is a lot thinner suggesting that it may have just battled in across the North Sea for the winter. Offshore movements slightly better with south bound 29 Brent, 25 Shelduck, 19 Dunlin, 8 Wigeon, 6 Common Scoter, 4 Gadwal, 4 Goldeneye, 4 Red-breasted Mergs, 4 Knot, 3 Grey Plover, Teal & Oyk plus 8 Common Scoter heading north.

4 birds ringed: 2 song thrush, 1 blackcap, 1 wren.
