Quiet morning

Another visit on Saturday morning to Winterton proved to be rather quiet. It was rather gloomy to start with but the showers held off, however there was a moderate SW blowing. As last week all the migrants seemed to have moved off during the week again, work gets in the way of everything !

A quiet net ride !
26 new birds and 2 retraps were caught, both retraps were Robins from last week.
Wren 4
Dunnock 1
Robin 1 (2)

Chiffchaff 7
Goldcrest 2, First of the Autumn
Coal Tit 1
Blue Tit 5
Great Tit 1
Chaffinch 1
Goldfinch 1
Yellowhammer 1, A recently fledged juvenile.

A Hobby was flying around the car park again, 2 or 3  Sparrowhawks were also flying about.
Migrant Hawkers and Common Darters were still plentiful, a superb Red Underwing moth was also seen.
