27th October 2009

A small amount of movement this morning comprising 5 Blackbirds, 3 Redwings, 2 Song Thrushes, 100 Starlings, 2 Goldfinches and a Chaffinch. The regulars included Meadow Pipits, Linnets, Pied wagtails, Rock Pipits and a Dunnock.

On the sea were 6 Wigeon (left), a Common Scoter and a Shag.

The most interesting sighting was a pale bellied Brent wearing colour rings not seen previously (second bird from right), white rings on both legs with the letter A on the right and number 4 on the left; enquiries will be made to try and find out where, when, and by whom it was marked. Today the Brents were at a high for this autumn of 38 birds.
