There was well over 50 Meadow Pipits on farborough bank, Draycote Water when we arrived this morning and a further 80 seen passing over. Also on the move were Chaffinches 20+, Skylark 50+ and a single Redwing and Golden Plover. Also noted were adult and second winter Yellow-legged Gull, Grey Wagtail, Sparrowhawk, 4 Gadwall and 7 Wigeon.

Unfortunately by the time we reached Napton on the Hill the mipit passage had dwindle to zilch and all we had was single Chiffchaff, 3 Mistle Thrush, 8 Buzzard and 5 Raven. Did not bother to go searching for last weekends Redstart.
