26th September 2018

An increase in numbers today. The Farm Wood had 50 Chiffchaffs, 20 Blackcaps and a Spotted Flycatcher. Hirundines were also on the move and there was the annual spectacle of House Martins landing on The Monument. In all there were 2 000 Swallows, predominately immature birds, 1 700 House Martins and 40 Sand Martins with a Hobby in close attendance.

Elsewhere on my daily Kingsdown to Bockhill walk were a further 20 Chiffchaffs, five Blackcaps, 130 Meadow Pipits, two Wheatears, 21 Yellowhammers, a Golden Plover, five Siskins and six Bullfinches.
