Thursday 17th October

A light but varied passage continued overhead with 63 Jackdaw, 40 Meadow Pipit and 12 Raven west, two Great Northern Diver high north up the estuary, 14 Snipe and three Siskin. A Firecrest was the pick of the grounded migrants along with a Coal Tit, a high count of 29 Long-tailed Tit, four Goldcrest and four Song Thrush.
