1st October

 Today's highlights:

One Yellow-browed Warbler, Oldstairs, 88 Chiffchaffs, 40 Blackcaps, three Lesser Whitethroats, one Common Whitethroat, six Goldcrests, two Redstarts, 19 Stonechats, one Ring Ouzel, 46 Robins, one Reed Bunting and  one Hobby. 

Overhead Siskins, Redpolls, Skylarks and Meadow Pipits still moving but in smaller numbers that recent days. 

A pale looking Wheatear found late in the day in evening sunlight provided an identification challenge but it couldn't be made into anything other than Northern. 

A Short-eared Owl was found dead near the Freedown. Judging from the location and its injuries, it looked as if it has flown into the electric fence around the Big Field.
