Friday 14th October 2016


Another arrival of mid-October migrants with Robins dominating as one would expect given the weather conditions. Of note 9 White-fronted Geese in off the sea plus 4 going south later in the morning. The first Woodcock of the autumn is always worth a mention as well as 4 Fieldfare, 4 Reed Bunting, 2 Firecrest, 2 Brambling & Siskin. Of the 3 Wheatear on the reserve this pale individual has been making people look twice for the last few days.

32 birds ringed: 13 Robin, 5 Goldcrest, 2 Blackcap, 2 Chaffinch, 2 Blackbird, 1 Fieldfare, 1 Redwing, 1 Siskin, 1 Chiffchaff, 1 Wren, 1 Dunnock, 1 Song Thrush, 1 Woodcock.
