Tuesday 4th November
Another good morning for visible migration although the lack of low cloud again meant smaller passerines, with the exception of a couple of flocks of Linnet, were notable by their absence at sea level. Totals heading west up to 10am included 8845 Wood Pigeon, 205 Starling, 101 Jackdaw, 40+ Linnet, 28+ Stock Dove, 14 Rook, three Raven and a high flying Red-throated Diver which came in from the Lympstone direction and kept heading south. Elsewhere a pair of Cirl Bunting were in Greenland Lake where a Bullfinch dropped in from height, 40+ Black-tailed Godwit were in the estuary and 40+ Gannet and Kittiwake were feeding close in offshore.
