Grey Day

Dunlin- circling in the grey misty weather which looked good for grounding migrants . Was hoping for something better than this today considering Brents and Common Scoters were recorded in other parts of Surrey. Tomorrow?

Blackbird- presumably a migrant 10-15 present today feeding on Haws

Woodpigeon- a few hundred today going over and decked

Teal numbers are building up but other duck numbers have reduced since mid Autumn- maybe the Shovelers etc were doing a moult stage at the farm and now moved on or perhaps the increasing gull numbers are pushing them on?

Also Redshank, 10+ Snipe, a few Redpolls and Siskins, a couple of Fieldfare and a few Redwings, 500+ Woodpigeons and a few Mipits and Skylarks.

The Cetti's was singing on-off during the morning.
