22nd October

A Reed Bunting, a notable bird for our recording area, was found among a flock of Chaffinches (for which the overall count was 40+) and Yellowhammers, amid which was also a Brambling. 20 Fieldfares also arrived at the farm, where a late-ish Chiffchaff was also seen and the Greylag Goose was seen in the fields again with 30 Canada Geese. The feeding opportunities for the adult female Peregrine clearly had not been exhausted, either, as she was still around. In addition, 10 Skylarks, two Pied Wagtails, 25 Linnets, 15 Goldfinches and two Yellowhammers were seen at the farm.
