October 18th 2010

A steady passage of migrants over the garden between 9 and 10am produced 134 Starling, 40 Skylark, 12 Fieldfare, 35 Meadow Pipits and 75 Redwing.
Did not get out till late afternoon and had another look at the Bearded Tit at Napton Reservoir but it was still very elusive and only other bird of note was a Lesser redpoll with the Long-tailed Tit flock by the small pool then it was a mad rush home for my moth meeting where we managed to trap 5 Large Wainscot, 2 Brick and Red and Green Carpet before a drink in the nearby pub.
