Sunday 18th December 2016


Misty cool morning but at least the worst of the fog has gone but as long as we have high pressure and almost no breeze then the spectre of it returning will still haunt us. 2 Fieldfare on site were new in but not really sure what a Yellowhammer heading south into the murk over the river then back north a few minutes later mid-morning is up to. Just goes to prove that migration is always going on, it's just at a lower level at some times of the years than other. Rock Pipit is still with us on the riverbank (with late news for yesterday being it present in the fog along with a Purp & Turnstone in the afternoon).

Not been a good fungi autumn although Fender Fungus Melanotus horizontalis is still with us on some of the remaining ropes that are quickly rotting away.
