Autumn Migration

Despite the fine, sunny, still weather a few birds are appearing locally.
Yesterday I called in after work to the old landfill site at Norton Green. A few chats had been seen over the previous few days, and one Whinchat remained for me.
Little else of note, though my first ever Stevenage Yellow Legged Gull flying over was a bit of a surprise.
Today a rather warm walk along the river Beane (whats left of it) proved to be a good bet when I found a Redstart in the hedge at Aston End.
Apart from that and the local Little Owl, and small flocks of flyover Meadow Pipit, Linnet and Yellowhammer there was not much happening.
