10th October 2008

All the Goldcrests had cleared out overnight and there was no passerine migration this morning on a strong southwesterly. After the 4 Sparrowhawks yesterday, 3 Peregrines were joined by 3 Merlins today, 2 of which flew in from the north east, and two Mute Swans flew out of the Dee in a northeasterly direction. A flock of 600 Dunlin were new today although the Pale -bellied Brent still remained at 6 adults and 3 juveniles. A single Goldfinch was trapped and ringed.
