Woodpigs, Cirls

Orcombe from first light - 7500+ Woodpigeons west with a couple massive flocks of 1000+ early on. The passage ended quite abruptly, early on and for no apparent reason as conditions were quite fine. Also this morning at least 2, probably 3 Cirl Buntings, including a nice adult male. Additionally - 4 Reed Buntings, 1 Dartford Warbler (still in the turnip field), 1 Golden Plover, 1 Dunlin, 3 or 4 Bullfinches, 4+ Fieldfares, 5+ Redwings, 1 Great Spotted Woodpecker, 3 Song Thrushes, 5 Blackbirds, 75 Starlings, 17+ Chaffinches, 19+ Stock Doves, c50+ Skylarks, 2 Grey Wagtails, c20+ Meadow Pipits, c30+ Goldfinches, 5 Goldcrests, 22+ Long-tailed Tits, small numbers of Linnets and Pied Wagtails, 3+ Redpoll, 2+ Siskins, 6+ Stonechats, 3 Chiffchaffs and 10+ Greenfinches.

A fraction of a much bigger 'ribbon' of Woodpigeons heading west.

Reed Bunting. One of 4 birds this morning - the best count of the autumn.
