Friday 17th November

A bright start to the day and with a light westerly wind Woodpigeon were again on the move, although many were probably missed early on, the tally between 8:30 and 11.00 was just over 10,000 west, with a handful of Stock Dove and Skylark amongst the flocks.

On site there were a few Chiffchaff in the bushes with three Bullfinch, a pair of displaying Goldcrest, a male Blackcap was along the Back Path and a Stock Dove on Warren Point.
