18th November

Whilst today's Northwesterly winds brought about a slight drop in temperature, long stretches of blue skies and sunshine made for a very pleasant if rather uneventful day. Birds logged at the Bill include a reduced passage of 760 Wood Pigeons, up to 4 Black Redstarts, 2 Purple Sandpipers, 1 Merlin as well as a single Fieldfare heading North.
