November 29th

This morning was clear that lots of birds were moving again (perhaps ahead of the coming cold spell). There were about 100 Fieldfares on the golf course and Chaffinches also regularly passing over. The Black-necked Grebe was in the same area in Braye Baye. The highlight of the day was a Common Crane, our 2nd of the year, spotted by Paul and Catherine Veron flying over Barrackmasters lane at 12:30, the bird was observed heading towards Corbletts. Shortly afterwards the Verons saw a single Swallow, an amazing late record exceeding the islands latest ever Swallow record (21st Nov 2005).
