Visible Migration pics up
Following yesterday's quiet morning - 4 Wheatears and 9 Siskin, today was a bit more like it. Eight Wheatears was a maximum for the year so far, as was the 100+ Siskin that passed over head in the first hour and a half. The first two Redpoll of the year moved through with a trickle of Chaffinches, Goldfinches and Greenfinch. Fifteen 'alba' Wagtails were frustraitingly too high to pick out any whites. Four Woodpigeon, 3 Reed Buntings and 2 Goldcrests were also present along with some 50 or so Meadow Pipits.
