Sunday, 7 November 2010

An excellent clear November's morning came up trumps with 6 Snow Buntings, including up to 5 still showing very well late morning. 7 Lapland Buntings flew over and were at one point joined by 5 Snow Buntings. Two were in the ploughed fields so there were possibly 9 today. A Woodcock showed well along the wall and nearly colided with me as it whizzed past. Other birds on the move were 4 Crossbills over, 3 Golden Plover, 2 Bullfinch, 50+ siskin, 10+ Redpoll sp., 15+ Brambling, plenty of Redwings, Blackbirds, Song thrushes and Mistle Thrushes, 29 Skylarks, 2 Reed Buntings, Goldcrest, many Woodpigeon, Rooks and 2 Lapwings.Also notable was a Grey Plover along west shore. Very few birders about today so all these birds were watched in peace and tranquility. Many birds were resting before they continued on their travells, such as this Woodpigeon in the gorse at the northern end.
