October 29th 2010

A very low cloud base and a strong south east wind at first light meant that overnight migrants were easier to pick out as they flew over my garden with 16 Redwing, 12 Fieldfare, 10 Goldfinch, 22 Chaffinch and 11 Skylark.
Out with Dave this afternoon to Draycote Water but the south east wind was so strong we had difficulty standing up, spending more time making sure the scopes did not get blown over than actually using them so struggled to find anything. The only thing of interest was the thousands of gulls present at 3pm.
At last I can post - apologies.
