Little Bee-Eater Cameroon Apr 2018

19 October, 2011

It certainly felt like winter at Climping first this morning, but as the sunshine warmed thingsa a little it was apparent that just a few migrants were still around. A Male Brambling in a hedgerow showed nicely but briefly, 6 Swallows passed through as did a dozen Redpolls, 75 Siskins, and 130 Goldfinch, but otherwise only 2 Chiffchaffs, 3 Blackcaps, 4 Goldcrest, 3 Reed Buntings and a single Wheatear were noted. A Little Owl being mobbed by Blackbirds was also located and 29 Brent Geese passed west offshore.
