Upottery Airfield, Smetharpe

Some visible migration this morning, principally Starlings with a count of 980 in just under an hour. The first Fieldfare of the autumn with 36 west and 20 Redwings also west. Single Wheatear and 3 Stonechats on the airfield with increasing numbers of Meadow Pipit with around 70 this morning. Skylarks remain in low numbers without any arable field at around 30-40 although they did appear to be arriving this morning.
