Quiet autumn

Despite this allegedly being the peak autumn migration period, it's pretty dead. Barnacle Goose numbers have dropped, Pink-feet numbers are rubbish and there's no thrushes here yet. Did add Yellowhammer to the year's list though - now 159. Crap! A few lingering summer migrants remain, including Swallow & Sandwich tern today. Also, 4 Little Gulls offshore...

So, in order to spice things up, thought I'd try to break my UK month record of 163, set in September 2002. I've a week away planned, plus a day up north so we'll see. So far, the total is on 81.
