6th October 2017

Oh for some warblers that aren't Chiffchaffs and Backcaps, which numbered 52 and two respectively today. Another day of hard work in a brisk NW wind. There was some evidence of overhead movement with regular parties of Siskins, mostly unseen against bright blue skies, and at least 14  Redpolls, seven Reed Buntings, one Grey Wagtail, and 400 Goldfinches. A small group (seven) of Song Thrushes and a Great Spotted Woodpecker were seen arriving in over the sea. Other birds of interest included a juvenile Hobby, a Tree Pipit, a Firecrest, three Stonechats and a Whinchat in the Freedown and presumably the same bird on the clifftop later. (Jack, Richard and Brendan).
