☁️10C ~ Wind ⇐ E@7mph Monday 4th November 2019 ~ Arrived at Brandon Marsh just after 10am and took a clockwise route passed the windpump, through New Hare Covert and on to Wright Hide.
It was a bright but cloudy start with a light easterly breeze and for the first hour some good visible migration. Plenty of Redwings on the move, along with (18) Fieldfare, (11) Skylarks, (3) Siskin and (1) Lesser Redpoll. A definite increase in Robins, Blackbirds and Goldcrests with (5) noted of the latter before I reached the hide.
