30 Oct – A trickle of migrants

Thursday 30th October: Rob Duncan and his team report a quieter day with just a trickle of migrants: 100 Redwings, 350 Chaffinches, four Bramblings, a Grey Wagtail, three White Wagtails behind the church, 40 Linnets, 35 Goldfinches and three Stonechats, along with a ringed Yellow-browed Warbler, a small number of Blackcaps and Chiffchaffs, and a Goldcrest in Millcombe. Among the birds trapped and ringed was a Siberian (blythi) Lesser Whitethroat. The long-staying female Tufted Duck was still on Pondsbury.
