16th - 20th November

A late migrant Kestrel arrived on the 16th, when the only other noteworthy sightings were 13 Fieldfares and a couple of Robins. There were 2 Redwings the following day and a Waxwing was outside the observatory, but there was nothing to report from a miserable day on the 18th. A couple of Woodcocks were found on the 19th, and 3 were seen on the 20th when other highlights were the Kestrel from earlier in the week and a Fieldfare. The Barnacle Goose was back among the Greylags, along with a Pink-footed Goose, on the latter date and 2 of the long-staying Chaffinches were still at Holland House.

Up to 75 Purple Sandpipers have been counted in the last few days.
