Chaffinch still going strong and Woodies making a move..


0730hrs-0830hrs... all west unless stated... Wind was very light maybe SW 3mph..

Chaffinch: 24, Starling: 22, Meadow Pipit: 11(party of 10), Fieldfare: 12, Greenfinch: 3, Siskin: 3NE, Reed Bunting: 2.. Woodpigeon: 100.. On leaving house there was a couple of parties of Woodies going over and then when up at Grane I had a further party, probably there would be far more going through but you need to be at a North to South routing eg: Hutch Bank or the Accrington Valley.. you never get many on a E-W valley like Grane..
