Monday 3rd November 2014

Weather; Sunny spells, clouding later. Wind SE f 3.

A small amount of overhead passage at the lighthouse today included 10 Chaffinches, 6 Skylarks and 3 Reed Buntings south and 2 Siskins east.

A single Twite was located in the paddocks with the Linnet flock, probably the same individual seen a few days ago just inland from here. Hopefully it will remain for the winter.

The Siberian Chiffchaff was showing well at times this morning in 'Scat alley', the footpath just south of the duckpond. It can go missing for long periods, however, as it probably has a large feeding circuit. A collybita race Chiffchaff was also in this area, with another being seen in Park Lane, Meols.
