26th September 2015

An early morning walk in very foggy conditions did not produce too much. Coinciding with high tide, a number of Curlew were on Melton Fields with their haunting call piercing the mist. A Chiffchaff was picking it's way through the bushes at the end of Brickyard Lane with a Bullfinch and the ever vocal Wrens.  The fog was two thick to see anything on the river, but nine Siskins flew in low and circled three times before choosing trees to their liking on the field edge.

On the common, Meadow Pipits were in evidence and a Yellow Wagtail was flushed from one of the puddles in the fog. A trio of Cetti's Warblers could be heard and a Great Spotted Woodpecker posed atop a dead tree. 

Back home, a Little Egret flew up river while a Long-Tailed Tit movement contained a Goldcrest and another Chiffchaff.

      Misted webs looked spectacular.
