Firstly I have to say what a wonderful sunrise it was this morning from the watch point. Although after sunrise it became very overcast with open skies to the east.
It was from this direction that small amounts of Redwings and continental Starling came in from and moved both to the S/W and N/W.
The real surprise though was my third Peregrine falcon on the autumn. The bird came in low from the S/E over Caldene fields and moved N/W giving very good views.
Also of interest was the first lapwings, (7 in total )of the autumn which moved to the S/W.
As we know Cormorants are increasing in inland areas and this year has been a bumper year for the species with an excellent 72 birds viewed from the watch point since early September to date. Last year I recorded over the same period just 43 birds.
