Friday 6 October 2017


Lade - 0700hrs - cool, sunny, nnw 3 - A pretty decent viz mig session on the local patch with a steady trickle of southbound Mipits, Goldfinches, Chaffinches and Pied Wagtails, plus a couple of Skylarks, five Redpolls, two Siskins and a late Tree Pipit. Also of note 200 or more House Martins and Swallows over the willow swamp, two Sparrowhawks and a scattering of Chiffchaffs and Goldcrests in the bushes.
  On the desert several large flocks of grounded Mipits, Starlings and Linnets, five Wheatears, three Stonechats and a Redstart in a small patch of scrub near Kerton quarry. There were plenty of Lapwings, corvids and gulls on the move over by the airport.
