Thurlestone Bay

Superb morning for viz mig watching -particularly if you like Wood Pigeons. Even from my garden in Thurlestone there was an almost contiuous passage of birds from 07.15 - 08.45 , my logs list flocks initially of c500 increasing to around 5000by o7.50 , The total was 52,500. Will be interesting to see if totals at some of the main headlands exceed this. Most birds flying very high in a south/south east direction.

Other species - 9 Siskin, 30 Chaffinch, 125 Skylark and a very high flying Great Spotted Woodpecker.
