A colder start to the day with a moderate NW. Brendan had the first Ring Ouzel of the Autumn in The Paddock. Elsewhere around Bockhill were a Common and Lesser Whitethroat in The Freedown, three Redwings over, a Tree Pipit, a Grey Wagtail, four ‘alba’ Wagtails, a Lapwing, a Curlew, seven Goldcrests, 47 Chiffchaffs, 28 Blackcaps and five Stonechats. Walking up from Kingsdown I had a further 10 Goldcrests, 25 Chiffchaffs, 12 Blackcaps and three Coal Tits.
