Orcombe was surprisingly good today. I did a dawn visit and a quick mid-afternoon whiz around. Migrants were represented by 1 or 2 Firecrests, at least 3 Chiffchaffs, 4 Stonechats, 5+ Meadow Pipits, 6+ Pied Wagtails and 1 Goldcrest (possibly just a local bird). Additionally 5+ Goldfinch, 3+ Greenfinch, 2 Bullfinch, 1 Green Woodpecker, 3 Raven and 5 Dark-bellied Brent Geese were recorded. Best bird however was a very vocal but restless Siberian Chiffchaff - only my second on Orcombe and presumably the same as that reported on 'Birdguides' a few days ago.
Firecrest - this morning's bird was in scrub along the coast path. This one was in the Bristol Schools' Camp this afternoon but they could feasibly be the same individual.
Dunnocks are very active everywhere at the moment.
