WEDNESDAY 5 OCTOBER
The Chilterns Region was bathed in warm and fairly blustery Southwesterly winds this morning, with a mixture of sunshine and cloud cover......
LITTLE CHALFONT (BUCKS)
A hint of some early morning passage came in the form of a Song Thrush and 5 Chaffinches moving over
IVINGHOE HILLS NATURE RESERVE (BUCKS)
A Viz-mig watch from 0800-1100 hours proved very poor with just 1 Song Thrush, 6 Common Blackbirds, 75 Meadow Pipits, 55 Chaffinch and 4 Greenfinch being noted. Most bizarre was an adult Mute Swan that flew east across the Beacon Slopes at 0833 - the first I have ever recorded there.
There was a single Common Chiffchaff in scrub just up from the S-bend, 185 Linnets and 35 Skylarks on the tilled field, 30 Goldfinch below the car park and Jay and a pair of Bullfinches in Top Scrub.
