Tuesday 23rd September

The first day of Autumn was greeted with a blanket of dense fog which precluded many sightings, with only the Meadow Pipit flock showing well as they foraged along the edges of Church Lane, Barming.

A dusk visit to Hall Place Farm gave brief, but good views of a juv/fem-type Redstart, my second this week.  I was lucky to get this bird, the light was fading fast and a number of distant passerines flitting around the hedgerows were frustratingly left unidentified.  However this bird, perched on top of the hedgerow, constantly flicked it's orange-red tail which caught the last rays of sun beautifully.
