This is a true story, just what happened to me this morning...
Visible Migration - 31st October 2012 - Slape Ln, Burton In Kendal, Cumbria.
Wind: NNE 5mph at first then up to 12mph and then North for a while.
Greenfinch: 9 W (singles/pairs)
Meadow Pipit: 3 S
Fieldfare: 65 (all directions eg: NE,SW, 30 party SE, E)
Redpoll: 7 (missed loads)
1400hrs to 1600hrs - Dalton Crags to Hutton Roof Trig Point. bbAt least 200 mixed Redwing (80% and Fieldfare%) feeding up in Dalton Crags, will have come in earlier and will probably roost. Hopefully catch them tomorrow in my early counts. Nothing whatsoever was moving this afternoon over HR other than a single corvid.
