Wednesday 17th October
No sign of the Black Redstarts this morning, despite an extensive check. A family group of 5x Pied Wagtails reclaimed their rooftop territory! A walk onto the plots in search of winter thrushes drew a blank. However a newly tilled field turned up 10x Skylarks, 3x Meadow Pipits, 30x Linnet and 16 Pied Wagatils. A Kestrel hovered expectantly nearby. 2x Red Admiral and 1x Peacock were blown south in the brisk breeze.
