24th November

Despite the dreariest of conditions today ticked over with a decent enough selection for late November. At the Bill, 10 Bramblings, 6 Redwings, 3 Siskins, 2 Lapwings and singles of Snipe and Fieldfare dribbled through overhead along with 100 Starlings and a few dozen Chaffinches; a new Blackcap dropped in and the lingering Merlin, Black Redstart and Siberian Chiffchaff were all logged. Offshore, a sample count of 282 Kittiwakes in 30 minutes was representative of a movement that was ongoing in that manner throughout the morning; 8 Teal, 7 Red-throated Divers, 2 Great Skuas and a Red-breasted Merganser also passed by. Elsewhere, 2 Redpolls and a Mistle Thrush were at Thumb Lane.
