Monday 17th October 2011

Too, too busy to have posted lately - but a quick review.  Early October delivered a couple of Hummingbird Hawkmoths to my garden, but the heatwave seems a long, long time ago.  Yesterday (16th Oct) saw me at Cliffe taking in excellent views of the Isabelline Shrike - what a cracker!

Today started off still and sunny, but by midday the wind had picked up from the west, bringing cloud with it.  A quick sortie to the Paris Farm Paddocks turned up my first, but distant  Fieldfare of the year, hopping through the turf with 7x Mistle Thrushes.  12x Meadow Pipits and 25+ Goldfinches were also present.
