27th Oct

The morning began with thick fog and very few birds but as the weather improved a trickle of birds started to appear with a Dartford Warbler in the broom and gorse behind the Shingle House followed by a super Pallas's Warbler caught in the moat. After processing it was released back into the moat and gave some good views during the afternoon. Other bits and pieces included two Little Owls and a Short-eared Owl in the Desert and Trapping Area this evening and a handful of Skylarks, Siskins and Redpolls passing overhead during the day. Three Firecrests and four Black Redstarts were also found and there was "resident" Ring Ouzel in the moat.
