Tuesday 1st December 2015

Mist nets taken down for the winter this morning. Heading south this morning 12 Mipits, 2 Skylark, Rock Pipit & Goldfinch plus offshore 19 Golden Plover & 15 Knot. The usual "flight" of Cormorants was impressive again this morning with at least 691 heading out to sea. On the reserve a single Snow Bunting pitched in after flying over the observatory from the riverbank & a Rock Pipit was on the point. Mild conditions mean that a couple of moths were in the traps including Dark Chestnut which has been scarcer than usual for some reason this autumn.

Ringing: 1 blackbird.
