28 September 2010

Early morning visit to the North Dunes revealed lesser numbers of Robins and a few Song Thrushes. Also two Ring Ouzels, ten Bramblings, lots of Siskins and Reed Buntings. A fine ringtail Hen Harrier also present. The only Common Redstart seen was in Sean's garden.

The evening produced two more Redstarts in the N Dunes but I spent most of my time on a wild bunting chase. It turned out to be a Reed.  The redstart in my garden hurts - I need to put up higher fences...
