13th October

The horrible noise on the video clip is an aerator (machine used to oxygenate the water).

The weather was a little to overcast for a really good movement of birds, but there was a taste of what could be on it’s way over the next two days.

Redwing: 45 birds in small groups were seen between 7.00am and 8.00am.

Song Thrush: 5 birds that were probably from the continent passed through.

Meadow Pipit: 8 flew north.

Pied Wagtail: 6 flew north.

Grey Wagtail: 2 were feeding on the islands in area 34.

Chiffchaff: 4 were in area 32.

Lesser Redpoll: one flew west.

Siskin: 6 did a circuit of the open spaces.

Greenfinch: 24 birds flew SW.

Chaffinch: 46 flew west.
