Comments: A very quiet but lovely morning with an ‘ end of season ‘ feel to the watch. Some movement may have been taking place very high up as a few finch Sp were noted, BH Gull did not move in any numbers and may well have run their course. No good numbers of thrushes or Starling moved and even passage Greenfinch’s are showing signs of slowing down here.
