28/10/22 Catch up

For over a month this blog has laid dormant, and despite efforts there has been mostly little to report. Since returning from Scilly (and between work trips to Paris) the highlight has been a Yellow Browed Warbler at langdon on the 21st.

Today I had 3 Ring Ouzel at the west end of the patch and 5 Lapwing flew West. Firecrests have been counted each day with around 10 a high count. Finch movement seems below average, 10’s of Siskins noted along with a handful of Redpoll and one or two Bambling.

Most days have seen hirundine movement (between 25 and 100 Swallows and low numbers of House Martins)

Hopefully a change in wind direction will produce some more birds or these southerlies will deliver a much much desired Pallid swift.
