17th October 2018

A light NW and another warm day. Brendan and I did our usual walks around the area ensuring both Bockhill and Kingsdown were covered.

Highlight was an early morning Pallas’s Warbler along Granville Road and then Oldstairs Road in Kingsdown. Calling and showing briefly, like many of its predecessors it didn’t stay around for long and couldn’t be relocated. There were two Yellow-browed Warblers in the Oldstairs area of Kingsdown as well.

Around the site we amassed two Short-eared Owls, five Firecrests, two Corn Buntings, six Tree Sparrows, a Crossbill, 85 Starlings, nine Alba Wagtails, 12 Redpolls, a Fieldfare, ten Redwings, 46 Song Thrushes, 21 Chiffchaffs, 15 Yellowhammers, ten Reed Buntings, 65 Siskins, two Swallows, eight Blackcaps, two Stonechats, four Bramblings and seven Bullfinches.
