1st November 2016

A virtually still slighty misty morning with hazy sunshine.


Return of the Dartford Warblers.

Things are really winding down bird wise, the bushes and belle tout wood are virtually birdless. There seems to be a small passage of Robin and Dunnock going on. Overhead c20 Redpoll went west along with a single Linnet, 2 Reed Bunting and a Siskin. Woodpigeon’s are on the move with 500+ moving east (an odd direction this time of year and wonder if these were birds were emerging from roost sites).

One feature of this time of year is the appearance of Dartford Warblers with at least 2 males present which can frequently be heard singing. There maybe somewhere in the region of 3/4 individuals in total. They usually linger into the new year.
