Sunrise from Orcombe Point this morning.
Nick and I covered Orcombe this morning - a beautiful morning and an absolute pleasure to be out. There was a little bit of activity overhead and there were a few bits and pieces in the bushes but nothing out of the ordinary. I nipped up there again this afternoon but couldn't add much. Totals included 6+ goldcrest, 1+ coal tit, 1+ chiffchaff, 7 turnstone, c10+ greenfinch, c10+ blackbird, 4+ siskin, 3 swallow, 10+ redpoll, c20/30+ linnet, c30/40+ skylark, c10/20+ pied wagtail, c20+ meadow pipit, c20+ chaffinch, c10+ goldfinch, 1 brambling, 2+ reed bunting, 6+ song thrush, 4+ jackdaw, 2 curlew, 18+ starling, 3+ stonechat, 1+ bullfinch, 1 kestrel and 1 grey wagtail.
After a shower and a bit of breakfast I walked the dog with the family up on the Commons. A single Crossbill was the highlight. I've been up there a couple times after work this week and have noted good numbers of Redpoll and Meadow Pipit with several Dartford Warblers, Goldcrests, Coal Tits and a few Reed Buntings and Fieldfare too. Also 1 Woodcock.
