Sightings 27 Species: Two Mistle Thrushes over early; this species not seen here for a while. Five Redpolls flew over, the first of the autumn but didn’t respond to calls, more Stonechats about today with the usual Dartford Warbler follower. Some rapture activity: Sparrowhawk over high-ish and Red Kite, not seen the latter at this end of the common much recently.
