Weather: SW 0-1, 8 oktas, light mist.
This picture of 4 off-passage whooper swans over Frog Pond this morning is dedicated to Guy McLelland because he is a big fan of my photography! I can see why.
Only had chance for a quick look around today, which was a shame because passerine numbers were reasonable-- highlighted by:
c20 song thrushes
c30 meadow pipits
97 greenfinches (a decent flock for Aldcliffe)
2 tree sparrows
2 goldcrests (a mega so far this autumn!)
and a littoralis-looking rock pipit.
Didn't seem to much in the way of vis, with just 5 skylark and 7 meadow pipits noted moving S.
