Sunday 7th October – Redwings

7:15 am Temp : 5°c Wind: N 2mph / gusts 6mph 1020.6hPa

Pretty clear with light airs. Little to no visible migration (ostensibly due to lack of head-wind to give any lift), but our first redwings of the Autumn moving in all directions. Looks like they must have ridden in high on north-easterlies overnight, over-flown and have been making their way back, generally eastwards during the morning. Plenty stopping to feed on the holly around Cabot Tower.

Last years redwings arrived on the 14th October – exactly 1 week from now on the same day as 2011’s first big wave of fieldfares.

Next watch will be Friday 12th from 7:15.
