2nd November 2015

Weather: S force 3/4, thick fog at times
A modest passage of thrushes this morning (by recent standards), there were 8 Blackbirds, 3 Song Thrushes, 5 Redwings, 2 Fieldfares. Ten Skylarks went through with just a single Starling and 3 Chaffinches and 3 Goldcrests grounded. The Brent reached a new high count for the autumn when 126 pale-bellied were logged, including the Blue and red ringed bird. Best birds of the day were possibly the 5 Scaup on the sea, with the only other ducks today being 6 Teal and 2 Common Scoter. When the fog cleared temporarily, 45 Great Crested Grebes appeared out of the mist off the north end.
Ringed: 1 Goldcrest, 1 Song Thrush                           [ 592-40 ]
