Vis mig picking up

There’s been some visible migration in the last two days over the garden with the highlights being 44 Meadow Pipit and 9 Siskin in 40 minutes today while yesterday there were 5 Siskin and Bob spotted 2 Jay while checking me trap..
At the pond then it’s been hirundines again that’s been very noticeable with large numbers of House Martin feeding up over hensborough bank with lesser numbers of Swallows and the odd Sand Martin while today just before 9am there were at least 25+ Meadow Pipit on farborough bank along 3 Grey Wagtail and 2 Wheatear (one yesterday). Alas by 11am they had been booted off by Joe Public.
Only other birds of note were 14 Buzzard, 11 Skylark and 6 Siskin which flew west, 2 Jay and 4 Chiffchaff in toft, Common Scoter off draycote bank, Black-necked Grebe in toft and adult Yellow-legged Gull loafing around. Bob gripped me off with a Nuthatch seen inside the draycote boundary near the valve tower while doing his circuit.
