The last fling of autumn passage?

The sort of murky light south easterly we have been waiting for all autumn.  Unfortunately all three of the current Ringing team had last minute commitments.  Best was a scarcity we don’t really need this year - spring records- found whilst scanning for any swifts!

Chaffinch - c40 south
Brambling - flock of 6 south then landed 
Meadow pipit - 1se and four more grounded
Blackbird - c30 round hnr office 
Redwing - two hnr office
Black redstart - female/imm north side Heyshsm Head seaward end Salem Mews
Common Scoter - flock of five

Winter Moth - one hnr office
