24th & 25th September

The 24th dawned cold with a northerly breeze, although by dawn of the 25th, the wind had switched to a light easterly and slightly warmer.

Yellow Wagtail amongst the cattle at Crowlink.

With a little extra free time in hand I’ve been throwing the net wide covering many sites from Cow Gap, the radio mast to Went Hill… with little reward!.  Of note, 3 Black Redstart (including a singer on the cliff face), 3 Firecrest. My first Ring Ouzel (2), Siskin and Golden Plover of the autumn. A Large passage of hirundines over both dates was visually the most notable occurrence. Chiffchaff numbers remain high (I’ve not seen a Willow Warbler in at least a week now)
