Bits and bobs

Heysham Obs
A few problems this morning so coverage was not as intended.

Visible migration
Suggestion of about 50/hour Meadow Pipit north during the morning. 9 Siskin were recorded heading north during the period just before and after midday

Middleton IE
Same as yesterday plus the dubious highlight of the first grounded (feral) Greylag (4) for the recording area this year. It is a measure of how slow things are that a visit to the Portland Bird Observatory website saw a similar 'daily highlight' - two Canada Geese!
