There's still plenty of birds coming and going through the island as there's no sign of the autumn finishing just yet. Today's quality was provided by the second drake Green-winged Teal of the autumn on Gretchen Loch from mid-afternoon. Clearly a much less advanced individual than the 'full adult' present on 26th October, it still has a large number of un-moulted juvenile/eclipse plumage in the form of 'barred' feathers in the flank and covert areas. Also worthy of a mention were a Long-eared Owl near Longar, a Grey Wagtail at the Pier and a smart, adult male Lesser Redpoll caught and ringed at Holland gardens. Counts of commoner species were essentially similar to yesterday, with 8 Woodcocks, 78 Robins (fewer than on 1st, but there's clearly some turnover as none of the recently ringed birds were re-trapped) , a Black Redstart, 2 Ring Ouzels, 715 Fieldfares, 619 Redwings, 9 Song Thrushes, 68 Blackbirds, 2 new Blackcaps and 18 Goldcrests. There was also a Greenfinch at the Observatory and single Sparrowhawk and Peregrine among the raptors seen.
