8th October

Overcast with light SW winds

Highlights today included 15 Ring Ouzels including  groups of five in the Paddock and six at Hope Point and a new Yellow-browed Warbler at the Gun Emplacement, along with yesterday's two birds still together at Kingsdown. Still lots of Song Thrushes around with around 70 counted  and Robins again seemed numerous with 25 in the Paddock (after which I forgot to count them!).  16 Stonechats included nine together adjacent to the Golf Course and a single Wheatear (Freedown). The Cetti's Warbler remained for its 5th day

Other birds of note:
    51 Chiffchaffs  plus 25 around Oldstairs ( as per Richard) and
   15 Blackcaps were counted.
    Single Firecrests were in the Farm Wood and Kingsdown.
    Three Bramblings
    250 House Martings
    45 Swallows
    Eight Grey partridge
