26th September

Another day that won't live long in the memory: the potential for an overnight arrival of exciting immigrant moths came to absolutely nothing, whilst the birding remained very much at the ticking over level. An early doors Ring Ouzel trapped at the Obs was easily the pick of the day's bird arrivals that included nothing else of particular note amongst the thin spread of routine fare. It was considerably busier overhead with in excess of 1100 Meadow Pipits leaving from the Bill; alba wagtails and Chaffinches are also beginning to feature more conspicuously, whilst two Merlins departed along with the flow of pipits.
