8 Nov:
Grounded migrants/winter residents -

1 ♂ Firecrest (wildlife pen in Avenue Gardens behind shelter, area 12 at 11:15 - wouldn't it be nice if it's the bird first seen on 11 October).

1 Fieldfare (feeding on slope below Primrose Hill lookout for second day).

1 ♀ Wigeon ('new' off NE tip of Heron Island, area 8).

23 Shoveler (more than double yesterday's number).

1 Chiffchaff (birch saplings in area 36 for third time in a week).

3 Pied Wagtail (often found on the restaurant level of The Hub at first light before flying toward the zoo).

3 Eurasian Siskin (my first confirmed sightings (!), in areas 9 and 39).

1 Lesser Redpoll (Cricket Pen, area 41).

There is a very good chance that it is that bird, but there were lots in the country a few weeks back.
