Upgrade ?

A mixed day weather wise with a bit of everything it seemed, probably getting ready for the northerlies that are forecast for the next week. They will no doubt put a dint in the spring migration, but for now it was pretty much as it was. A good check of patch produced 2 Pied Wagtails in the infamous 'pig field'! A Rook put in an appearance, thank god, banishing the shame of the 2 i scoped up at Skaw. The rest of the migrants were made up with 7 Chaffinch and a Brambling still, 2 Dunnocks, 2 Chiffchaff, Redwing, 4 Robins and 2 Fieldfare.  

A brief check of Skaw was unexpectedly poor with just a Goldcrest and Chiffchaff in the plantation. The Little Gull reappeared also at Hamister after a 2 day absence.
