9th November 2018 Goldcrests Galore.

Overnight SE wind, developing into a blustery southerly by dawn strengthening and veering gale force SW by midmorning.


Goldcrest in Belle Tout wood.

A significant arrival of Goldcrest overnight with Belle Tout wood hosting a minimum of c80 birds perhaps a 100 would be a more reasonable estimate, a Brambling and 2 Chiffchaff also present along with two each of Blue and Great Tit. The long staying Eurasian Treecreeper and a Coal Tit (race not specified) were also seen by others.

Holywell and Shooters were also ringing to the sound of Goldcrest but windy conditions and cover made it hard to make estimates of numbers present.
