Skomer - 06/10/2012

Today saw a flurry of interest including Wryneck, Barred Warbler (Dave B), Ring Ouzel (Dave B) and Lapland Bunting (Dave B).

 Distant Barred Warbler (Photo by  Chris T) They usually nest E Europe and winter in Arabia/E Africa - So this young one got it all a bit wrong.
Just a Dunnock - but still an interesting bird (Chris)

Other stuff:
A Red Kite came over for a couple of hours before heading back to the mainland, 
It was the first day of the autumn with a few thrushes - 8 Blackbirds & 8 Song Thrushes, and a few finches were going over as well - about 60 Chaffinches, 5 Siskins, 65 Goldfinches 1 Redpoll & 1 Greenfinch.
In the valleys there was 17 Goldcrests, 4 Chiffchaffs, 2 Blackcaps & a Willow Warbler
