Thrushes and Geese arrive on mass…

It was an excellent morning at the watch point this morning with a mass arrival of Redwings, Fieldfare, Starlings, Geese and finches.


Linnets waiting for the fog to clear before moving.

Redwings came in first from the N and a total of 4,076 moved to the S.  Fieldfares came in 1,462 altogether around 10.00 and mainly from the S/E and moved to the S/W.  There was a good movement of Pink-footed geese 1,167 in total and all to the N.  A welcome surprise was a party of 73 Brambling that flew to the S/W.

To keep me company was a Small Copper butterfly and 2 Small Whites and just for good measure a Common Darter was seen moving slowly to the S
