Saturday 6th

Brighter with a lighter NE breeze and consequently a good deal more pleasant than yesterday. Movement was pretty much the same, however, with 340 Chaffinches, a Siskin and 4 Goldfinches flying NE.

Friday 5th

In a biting NE wind and overcast conditions 333 Chaffinches, a Siskin and 11 Goldfinches flew N and a Woodlark flew in the opposite direction over the top wood and fields. Otherwise it was left to 6 Tree Sparrows to warm things up a bit.

Thursday 4th

Two days of dense fog cleared for the most part, though the day dawned misty with light rain and a chilly NNE breeze. Spring continued its hesitant steps with 2 Chiffchaffs on the clifftop and a Crossbill that flew N, while a Golden Plover was calling in the murk over the farm.
