Disappointing day!

15th October 2009 - early fog/calm then sunny spells W1
Grounded Migrants
A total of 14 Redwing, 7 Song Thrush and single Fieldfare and Chiffchaff were a scant reward for the promising early morning conditions.
Diurnal Migration
After a slow start a few birds moved through as the conditions cleared. Sightings included 55 alba Wagtail, 45 Pink-footed Goose, 45 Meadow Pipit, 40 Starling, 30 Skylark, 28 Linnet, 25 Greenfinch, 12 Chaffinch, 4 Redpoll, 3 Siskin, 3 Grey Wagtail and single Twite and Swallow.
The Water Rail remains.
Migrants attracted to the moth traps overnight involved 2 Rush Veneer, 2 Silver Y and a Pearly Underwing - the latter the first of the year.
