Goosanders heading south (Mark Pearson)

A relatively quiet few days, with a warm south-westerly airflow and passage restricted to expected late autumn migrants. Single Great Northern Divers headed south off the Brigg on 8th and 9th, Whooper Swans were south off the Brigg (six on 7th) and at the Dams / East Lea (three on 8th), while notable visible migration at the Gap on 8th included five Goosanders, 98 Siskins, two Twite, seven Bullfinches and a single Snow Bunting.
