This morning, I walked Bunty around Boulmer. The weather was dull and overcast but mild and calm.

After my first Siskins of the year here flew north last Friday, today, there was a good passage of them moving steadily south. Flocks of 6, 23, 15, 8 and 1 plus several flocks heard but unseen high overhead were a good record here. 12 Skylarks flew south and a couple of Song Thrushes arrived off the sea.

In the village, two Stoats were road casualties together outside Bowmere. Shame, they might have helped thin the rat population a bit..

Last night, while out with Bunty at Seaton Point, 6+ Redwings were new in.

I could do with a Woodcock?
