I was unable to get out yesterday when there was clearly an arrival of thrushes, Yellow-browed Warblers & Firecrests, so today I was on the patch for first light. 2 Yellow-browed Warblers & a Black Redstart were the top birds of the day. Also seen: 11 Whooper Swan & 120 Pinkfeet went south at exactly the same time either side of me, 24 Little Egret, 55+ Brent Geese, Marsh Harrier, Merlin, Grey Wagtail, Blackcap, Chiffchaff, 2 Brambling, Snow Bunting as well as a few Redwings & Song Thrushes dotted about.
No Firecrests were reported in the area today.
Nearly forgot, I had a Barn Owl close to Tetney village at first light this morning.
