Record Smashed…

Wow! what a day at the vis-mig point. Wood Pigeon were on the move again and the conditions were just right cold with good visibility up to 20 miles.

It was an unprecedented morning !!! With my previous WP record totally smashed. The birds moved before dawn with one four figure count the highlight. Around 8am I had strings of 4,500, 2,400 and 4,560. Most birds observed moving to the E of the watch point. However, the count is probably an undercount as a casual glance over my shoulder and a ” Black cloud ” of pigeon passed high to the W. Passage stopped at around 09.00 then picked up again around 09.10 petering out around 10.00.

Total count 40,137

A well earn cup of tea after a hectic morning!
