Mega Move over Queensbury 12-10-2006

Mipits piling over from first light with a few Redwings mixed in. By 0730 Redwings were coming over in good numbers. All birds were flying very direct and >S until mid morning when all movement stopped apart from a slight trickle of Mipits which were still coming over at 1700hrs.Unable to count as getting ready for and on way to work but in short time I had I clocked at least 500 Mipits and 200+ Redwing.
