29th Sep

A calm morning saw a reasonable arrival of commoner migrants with a Willow Warbler, 70 Chiffchaffs, ten Blackcaps, four Goldcrests while passage overhead included four Grey Wagtails, 420 Meadow Pipits, a Tree Pipit, 95 Lesser Redpolls, six Crossbills, 40 Siskins and 17 Reed Buntings.

A Badger was seen around the Observatory in the evening.

The moth traps were fairly quiet but two Palpita vitrealis, a Vestal and two Delicates were seen. Five Mottled Shieldbugs were also found.

Elsewhere there was little doubt as to the star bird of the day when a moulting adult American Golden Plover was found in the afternoon at the ARC Pit.
