Soil Hill

Been a very lively week for migrants on Soil Hill, and today was no different: 
  • Two Tree Pipit flew south, both calling loudly. LNK was able to get fantastic recordings of both individuals; here is a recording of the first individual which flew right overhead
  • One Sedge Warbler was still present, although there have been two in recent days. Photo below from the 11th, thanks to JJL for use of his spare camera
  • 13 Willow Warblers were counted around the area today
  • Two separate Great Spotted Woodpecker flew north 
  • Three Swifts were flying high over Ogden, won't be long now
Also a Snipe flew over the Summit and appeared to be dropping as if to land on the Bottom Cattle Fields, my first of the Autumn.
In total managed 44 species this morning, the full list below
