It's quite obviously November as bird life around the patch has come to an absolute halt. However it was great to see what for sure will be my last Swallow of the year which flew east over Harry's Bush.
Other birds of note were a single Siskin, 2 Goldcrest and 2 Yellowhammers flew over.
As usual this time of year management work starts in Hope Gap. It seems they are doing a better approach then last year by actually making the area look reasonable afterwards, which wasn't the case in previous years. What will gain from this i'm none the wiser, but if a Radde's Warbler is found on one of the managed areas, all will be forgiven.
