13th November

A lovely winter’s day, calm, dry and bright but the light northerly breeze was pretty cold; a Coue’s Arctic Redpoll was seen at Sangar in the afternoon but couldn’t be relocated by the Obs staff while other totals included 10 Pink-footed Geese, the Green-winged Teal, 2 Hen Harriers, single Merlin and Peregrine, 2 Woodcock, 8 Skylark, 7 Meadow Pipits, 34 Robins (a notable increase but probably just birds feeding out in the open in the fine conditions), 12 Fieldfare, 75 Redwing, the Mistle Thrush again, 3 Siberian Chiffchaffs still, 75 Twite, 3 Common Redpoll and 48 Snow Buntings.
