A pair of Raven were noted at Haselbech, Hanging Houghton and Harrington Airfield today. What wasn't clear was whether it was the same pair circulating in the area or different birds. A Wheatear was still at Harrington Airfield and a pair of Stonechat were still present in the southern-most field at Blueberry Farm plus a Hobby.
There was a heavy diurnal passage of passerines in the NN6 area this morning which was still evident at midday. The southward passage was dominated with constant flocks of Meadow Pipits, but also a few 'alba' and Yellow Wagtails, several species of finches including a couple of Crossbills and many Siskins. Swallows and House Martins were moving in the same direction. A very autumnal day!
