20th October 2018

The wind being from the NW we expected more birds and certainly there was an increase in the movement overhead. There were four Swallows, 65 Meadow Pipits, two Rock Pipits, 14 Song Thrushes, five Redwings, two Fieldfares, 203 Starlings, 23 Chaffinches, four Greenfinches, 1172 Goldfinches, 188 Siskins, 10 Linnets, 51 Redpolls, one Crossbill and 15 Reed Buntings.
In the big field were up to 100 Skylarks, 700 Linnets, 15 Yellowhammers and three Wheatears, and elsewhere in the area were six Buzzards, a Merlin, 16 Grey Partridges, two Short-eared Owls, two Stonechats, three Blackcaps, four Chiffchaffs, 44 Goldcrests and seven Bullfinches.
