The drake American Wigeon performed really well in the area known as the 'Duckpond', behind the leisure centre, this morning. A number of birders managed to catch up with it. Quite a few Redwing were moving overhead with at least 105 counted in the time I was there. This prompted me to have a quick look at Orcombe but I didn't get up there 'til 9am. In the hour I was up there at least 80 Chaffinch flew west along with a 45-strong flock of Woodpigeon and 7 Starling. Also noted - 1+ Siskin, 2 Goldcrest, 1 Chiffchaff, c20 Skylark and 4 Stonechat.
