As well as feeling very under the weather today (poorly) I thought I would get into the autumn swing of things and not moan about the weather but try and look on the bright side. The winds swinging westerly or southwesterly should be good for a bit of vismigging. Don’t forget that this weekend looks great for the coordinated vismig count. I’m hoping to be on Borrough Hill both Sat and Sunday mornings.
Looking further ahead and afield, three Buff-bellied Pipit on Iceland have probably been blown in on the current winds and a depression is moving across the North Atlantic for the early part of next week. Maybe a bit of a good blow for seabirds in the Severn Estuary or the Wirral?
I have also added a new link for those heading to Scilly, the North American Hurricane Centre. Nothing doing at the minute but keep checking. This wasn’t actually predicted to be a good year for hurricanes, bad for us, good for the Yanks I guess. It hasn’t stopped a few Yanks getting through though; apart from the Pipits, an American Black Tern, Blackburnian Warbler and Northern Harrier have all made it so far.
