17 October - Finches galore

A big increase in the numbers of BRAMBLINGS this morning, with birds feeding on the beach mast between the car park and s-bend as well as flocks in just about every white beam feeding on berries.

A single RING OUZEL remains in the bushes east of the beacon, just above the footpath. A large mixed finch and bunting flock were in the short grass area left of the footpath as it goes up towards the beacon. Mostly Linnets but also contained Greenfinches, chaffinches, bramblings, yellowhammers and 4 Reed buntings. 3 Northern Wheatears were also present in the same area (David Bilcock)
