8th April Visible migration Hunstanton - at last!

8th April 2013 Hunstanton Cliffs

Well after the longest period I ever remember of East or North Easterly winds we eventually saw a swing to the SW this morning, albeit by the afternoon the wind was back in the NE!!

Just enough time this morning for some visible migration at Hunstanton Cliffs though.

Hunstanton Cliffs 620 - 820am Chris Mills, Gary Hibberd

Birds south - 
354 Woodpigeon, 
15 Rook, 
6 Skylark, 
26 Starling, 
1 Blackbird, 
2 Tree Sparrow 
29 Pied Wagtail, 
65 Meadow Pipit, 
31 Chaffinch, 
1 Brambling, 
21 Greenfinch, 
277 Goldfinch, 
54 Siskin, 
62 Linnet, 
1 redpoll sp., 
2 Yellowhammer, 
12 Reed Bunting. 

1 Pied Wagtail - North. 

Plenty of birds to keep your interest. But difficult conditions with birds high & variable in direction, with light 2 SW breeze, no cloud. Goldfinch count good.

I then headed on to Holme, where a fem Black Redstart was present, plus up to 7 Marsh Harriers in the air, with 3prs performing aerial acrobatics!
