Article summary

A number of arrivals marked this Autumn: Eurasian Jays Garrulus glandarius,  Coal Tits Parus ater, Blue Tits Parus caeruleus, Great Tits Parus major and Chaffinches Fringilla coelebs. Autumn also saw the passage of Great Spotted Woodpeckers Dendrocopos major, Rough-legged Buzzards Buteo lagopus, Great Grey Shrikes Lanius excubitor and one Waxwing Bombycilla garrulus. From the summer onwards, there was a widespread abundance of Nuthatch Sitta europaea perhaps due to a successful nest season together with the reduced fruit production of many trees.   During the autumn there were marked peaks in the numbers of migrating birds, especially during late August - early September, and then in October, particularly on the 13-14 and 17-23. Visible passages were often sharply demarcated and concentrated in time. Passages declined sharply from the end of October.   Overall, there were substantial visible passages of species such as White Stork Ciconia ciconia, Hobby Falco subbuteo, Dotterel Charadrius morinellus, Grasshopper Warbler Locustella naevia, Common Chiffchaff Phylloscopus collybita, Willow Warbler Phylloscopus trochilus, Common Chaffinch Fringilla coelebs, Brambling Fringilla montifringilla, Greenfinch Carduelis chloris and Goldfinch Carduelis carduelis. Great White Egrets Casmerodius albus were less abundant than in 2011. Rarities include Black-shouldered Kite Elanus caeruleus, Booted Eagle Aquila pennata, Short-toed Snake Eagle Circaetus gallicus, White-tailed Eagle Haliaeetus albicilla, Pectoral Sandpiper Calidris melanotos, Sociable Plover Vanellus gregarius, the Caspian Tern Hydroprogne caspia and Arctic Tern Sterna paradisaea, Crested Lark Galerida cristata, Red-throated Pipit Anthus cervinus and Aquatic Warbler Acrocephalus paludicola. There were three captures of Barred Warbler Sylvia nisoria and four of Yellow-browed Warbler Phylloscopus inornatus.
