Thursday 2nd November

Birds continued to move overhead in small numbers before the cloud cleared late morning. Highlights included two Brambling, 17 Bullfinch, eight Redpoll, seven Reed Bunting, six Mistle Thrush, four Redwing and two Siskin. Other counts included 1090 Wood Pigeon, 42 Chaffinch, 19 Skylark, 18 Jackdaw, eight Greenfinch and two Rook. Some of the Greenfinch and Redpoll dropped into Greenland Lake to join a mobile flock of 110 Goldfinch, these in turn attracted the attention of two Sparrowhawk. Elsewhere the Cetti's Warbler was at the Main Pond and 50+ Black-tailed Godwit, 31 Shelduck and a Pintail were in the estuary.
