Monday 2nd November 2015


Shrouded in thick and heavy fog all day didn't do much for the migrant front but a few birds still around despite the tricky weather.

New migrants today included 108 Starling, 3 Redwing, 8 Goldcrest, 8 Greenfinch, 7 Goldfinch, 5 Chaffinch, 4 Brambling, 1 Siskin, 1 Grey Plover, 1 Mute Swan, 14 Cormorant, 1 Gannet, 6 Meadow Pipit, 3 Rock Pipit, 5 Skylark, 1 Grey Wagtail, 1 Wheatear, 1 Reed Bunting, c.15 Blackbird and 4 Stock Dove.

This Little Auk was found this afternoon, unfortunately it had succumbed to the elements and we presume it was taken by a local Peregrine Falcon.

Ringing: 5 birds ringed during the morning including 2 Chaffinch, 1 Robin, 1 Sparrowhawk and 1 Fieldfare.
