12.10.20 Dartford Warblers

A very still morning after a crystal clear windless night. SW wind building, rain by early afternoon.

All in all a quiet morning for me, the light winds seemed not to produce much overhead and only a low single digit counts of Redpoll and Reed Bunting along with the odd invisible Siskin heard. My Chiffchaff tally was also low, maybe 15 birds. The two Dartford Warblers discovered the day before by SL were typical arrivals for the time of year. I had single Ring Ouzels at the radio mast and in Shooters Bottom. Firecrest in Belle Tout wood and Birling Lane along with 10 Goldcrest. 800+ mostly House Martin hung above the headland for most of the morning.
