Look out for the winter thrushes…

It was a good morning at the watch point this morning with Redwings 981, Song Thrushes 19, Blackbirds 15 and 3 Fieldfare all basically moving S/W although a few Songs and Blackbirds ventured north.

And this Rowan at the watchpoint must be a welcome sight..

There was however, frustration in that 5 Swans Sp came in from the S/E but extremely high making a confirmed ID impossible.  Also during the last couple of days Jackdaws have been moving also to the S/W with a 166 recorded this morning.  With all this avian activity it’s feast time for the predators at least 2 Sparrow Hawks were patrolling the skies.

Last night was the last night of moth trapping for 2016 with a single Large yellow underwing caught.
