Thruscross 01-04-2009

Thruscross 1st April 2009 0655-0845
Wind 0-1 variously N, SE and SW F1

Probably got up too early to generate enough enthusiasm to sustain my watch. Clearly not as lively as yesterday but not without interest.

Redpoll 4N,
Siskin 20N,
Brambling 5NW,
Linnet 1N
Redshank 1W
Goosander 2NNE
Meadow Pipit 48 (plus ca change)
Alba wag 1 N
Carrion Crow 18N
Ring Ouzel 1 Male N

A quick stop (20 mins) at Stainburn on my way back to Harrogate revealed 2 Wheatears and 17 Meadow Pipits N. The latter seems impressive but visibility was very good so they were harvested over a big area!

Hopefully Friday will be a better day (work tomorrow)

All the best
