North Easterlies and Vis - Longsands - 29th September

The last couple of days have brought in the big names on Shetland and Orkney - Siberian Thrush, Swaison's Thrush, Lanceolated Warbler, Pallas's Grasshopper, Pechora Pipit, Sardinian Warbler, Red Throated Pipit, Great Snipe, Greenish Warbler, as well as Semipalmated Plover, Blyth's Reed Warbler, and a host of Scarce Drift Migrants.
As would be expected, non of these make their way to Lancashire! However, Autumn has started Early
Vis watch - 08.10 - 09.30
2 Redwing (2nd (1st and earliest ever yesterday, 6) of the Autumn)
1 Fieldfare (")
41 Chaffinch
2 Bullfinch
16 Woodpigeon
3 Meadow Pipit
+ a possible Brambling calling but could not locate as it flew overhead.

Hopefully Tomorrow at Fleetwood Cem will produce (YBW please?)
