Some migrants at last...

Yesterday an early morning dog walk had a few migrants arriving from the coast. 21 Redwings flushed from Village Wood while 6 Bramblings, my first of the autumn, flew west. Another single Brambling was in the copse next to our garden.

Late on last night a Whimbrel was calling as it flew north along the coast path, a late bird here.

Today there are quite a few Blackbirds and smaller numbers of Redwings dotted about the village. A lone Redpoll that was big enough to be a Mealy dropped into the Rowan on our drive before carrying on west.

I might get a better look tomorrow. I might not have missed out on a chance of Yellow browed quite yet...
