Lade - mild, overcast, sw 2 - 0730-0900hrs - Tried a viz mig session this morning from the aerial ramp where the standout bird was a Yellowhammer, only my third site record; infact, over the years I`ve had many more Lapland Buntings overhead.
  All birds were heading south as follows: Skylark 11, Mipit 78, Swallow 83, House Martin 8, Sand Martin 5, Grey Wagtail 2, alba wagtail 21, Song Thrush 5, Chaffinch 53, Greenfinch 8, Goldfinch 254, Siskin 6, Linnet 118, Yellowhammer 1, Reed Bunting 23.
  Around the ponds 10 Chiffchaffs, two Goldcrests and three Blackcaps the best of the migrants. Also noted across the site: three Great White and 12 Little Egrets, Sparrowhawk, Marsh Harrier, Green Woodpecker, Jay, Stonechat and Cetti`s Warbler.
