Wood Pigeons have been moving S over and to the E of the watch point for the last few days. I must admit I was surprised that the birds would start to move with a strong headwind…but they did.
On the 31/10 I recorded 2,497, a 1,007 on the 1/11 and 7,598 today Please see: https://www.trektellen.org/count/view/779/20201102
Normally Wood Pigeons seem to favour the cold frosty mornings in autumn with little wind to move S. However, the birds have started to move in unfavorable weather conditions i.e. mild weather and a strong headwind. The weather is to settle and turns cooler in the next few day so it will be interesting to noted what happens then.
