26th October 2018

Corn Buntings have been absent for most of the autumn but have returned in the last week. Three were on the clifftop this morning including this bird that was singing.

Other than that it was exceptionally quiet in brief visit today. The only birds of note were two Goldcrests and a single Stonechat. Overhead was quiet with a few Redpolls and Siskins and a single Brambling.
Later in the morning Phil walked around the area having no birds until he reached Hope Point. From there to Otty Bottom he had 460 Wood Pigeons, 15 Stock Doves, 180 Skylarks in off the sea,
43 Blackbirds, 19 Redwings, 10 Fieldfares, 10 Chiffchaffs, two Firecrests, six Goldcrests, 13 Jays,
two Bramblings, and three Crossbills.
On the sea there were 11 Brent Geese and five Harbour Porpoises.
