12th November

A clear and increasingly blustery day saw excellent conditions for visible passage early on and the finches most definitely obliged with 930 Chaffinches, 390 Goldfinches, 27 Siskins and 5 Bramblings with a savvy Merlin in tow. Elsewhere, there was no sign of our seven-striped pixie but a Yellow-browed Warbler and a Firecrest were still present amongst the Goldcrest flock.
