Saturday 24th October 2015

Rain moved in again today with the highlight being a superb Rough-legged Buzzard west just south of the Broadwater, and a ring-tail Hen Harrier passing some time later. A Barn and Short-eared Owl were hunting and a Cetti's Warbler was trapped and ringed. Other birds of note included Grey Wagtail, 6 Rock Pipits, 9 Bramblings, and 8 Siskins. A Pearly Underwing moth was in the trap.
