Not a great deal but the Redwings are coming!

Heysham Obs
An alert from the Pennines that Redwings are on their way!

Vis mig 0800ish-0830ish
alba Wagtail - 17 SE
Chaffinch - 30 S
Goldfinch - 4 S
Song Thrush - 3 watched being grounded (see below)
Meadow Pipit - 3 SE

A most significant element of a thorough check of the NR was the complete lack of Goldcrest! 15 migrant Song Thrush and 3 Chiffchaff were the 'highlights'

Guillemot in harbour still

The two Great White Egret are still at Leighton Moss
