Hunter Hill watchpoint

I went to check for any visible migration for a couple of hours or so this morning though things were pretty quiet. Not had a full count up yet but around 60+ Meadow Pipits, 3 Skylark and a few Swallows - all >SW.

Also around the hill and along Cold Edge Road
Flock of around 120 mixed Goldfinch and Linnet on thistles
1 Green Woodpecker
1 Little Owl
1 Kestrel
1 distant Common Buzzard
1 Wheatear
Green Woodpecker - rather distant shot !

If you are still wanting House Martin records there were around a dozen feeding on the hillside at Stoodley Pike around 13.30 this afternoon.
