On Friday morning flocks of Pied wagtails passed east over the Castle, flying very high and fast. These birds are probably moving from staging roosts as they spread into southern England for the winter.
Very hazey on Saturday from 7.30 to 8.30 am - migrants heard calling but not seen included Fieldfare and Snipe. Goldfinches are passing eastward in flocks. it was nice to hear several goldcrests calling from cover as this species seems to be in very small numbers so far this autumn.
At North’s seat two Ring ousels, with the goldfinch migration continuing…
At sea wildfowl could be seen - parties of Brent geese, also Teal and Shelduck.
