The first notable movement of Redwings of the autumn began at first light and lasted for about an hour with about 400 seen. There were also 24 Fieldfares, and a few Blackbirds and Song Thrushes. Finch and Lark numbers were much reduced compared to the the past few days, though there were a good sized flock of Meadow Pipits again. A few Reed Buntings were on the move again (see pictures). There was a single Firecrest at Nant. A new arrival of tits and woodpeckers was noted with both Great and Blue Tits being trapp
ed and ringed, and two Great Spotted Woodpeckers were seen. Bird of the day goes to the Yellow-browed Warbler seen (and later trapped) in Cristin Withy.

No Dolphin sightings today.
