Flocklet of 3 Redwing and 2 Fieldfare "arrived" in Chipstable this morning, 9am (last year was 5th & 7th, respectively)
Swallows still passing over high, yesterday morn (5th Oct).
Exciting news, i love the arrival of these two birds. I usually listen for them in the dark evenings passing over head to see if they have arrived yet so it is great to get a visual so early in the month.
and single Redwing over Churchinford at 13.10 today. A light passage of skylarks and meadow pipits throughout the morning.
Sky full of Redwings over Withycombe Common this morning at 9am. Same date as last year!

At least 450 Redwings at Wall Common this morning.Also 7 Song Thrushes were part of the thrush influx.The lone Swallow was presumably on it's way south!.
30 Redwing going N over Westport this morning as probably my last two Swallows of the year flew SW over garden...
