Colin's Bird Diary - 10th November 2007

Posted Saturday 10th November 2007 at 20:27 by Colin
A short visit to Ashleworth Ham Nature Reserve on a breezy but generally mild day with a few sunny periods.

I was unable to find either the Great Grey Shrike or the Water Pipits. Indeed apart from the now usual flocks of Fieldfare and Redwings with many Starlings amongst them, it was a quiet day. These thrush flocks continue to impress and have done so for over two weeks now which in this area is just about unprecedented. In other years, this number has been present but just for...

Colin's Bird Diary - 8th November 2007

An afternoon at Ashleworth Ham Nature Reserve on a day of sunshine, some cloudy periods and occasional very heavy blustery showers. The latter brought down many of the beautifully coloured leaves which were still on the trees. It was 'snowing' leaves all across the reserve at one point.

I was searching through the Snipe looking for an odd coloured individual that I had seen two days ago. This one had the dimensions of a Common Snipe but was much darker and its central crown stripe...

Colin's Bird Diary - 7th November 2007

Back at Ashleworth Ham on a more breezy day and with more cloud than of late.

I refound the Great Grey Shrike which is now been present for 22 day. Plenty of Snipe were again noted from the road with 17 of them showing. The 2 Water Pipits were showing really well, clear of the vegetation for much of the time.

Of other interest was the continued passage of Fieldfare and Redwing but of real note on the migration front was the constant stream of Chaffinch passing through....

Tuesday. Ashleworth Ham Nature Reserve on a fine but cool and dry day.

I was unable to find either of the Great Grey Shrikes in spite of intensive searching along Stank Lane to the end of the track. There were hundreds of Fieldfare present with more Redwings than of late and not a few Starling. This is a feature of this autumn in that the numbers of these winter thrushes appear to be high and more noticably are remaining high.

Colin's Bird Diary - 3rd November 2007

Posted Saturday 3rd November 2007 at 19:47 by Colin
Another dry and partially sunny day and there were quite a number of people at Ashleworth Ham Nature Reserve looking for the Great Grey Shikes, two having been reported together and the Water Pipit.

Both species were present at various times throughout the morning but I only mangaged to see the Water Pipit again. The shrikes seemed to go missing during the morning and I could not find one even with a good hours searching. While looking, I noted 460 Starling including a very pale...
