Rob and I had been planning some dawn watches from the Steps Hill/Ivinghoe Beacon area for a while now. So we gratefully tagged along with Mike Wallen and met up at 06:15 this morning to see how he carries out his 'vis mig'. Judged on Mike's previous visits it was not a classic days migration but we still recorded 7 Common Buzzards, 2 Red Kites, 2 Ravens, handfuls of Meadow Pipits over, 7 Redwing and a flock of 40+ House Martins. (No Gannets unfortunately)
This site shows how others got on over the weekend:
On the mammal front we saw 1 dark form Fallow Deer with another 4 a little later. 1 Hare and a handful of Rabbits. We'll certainly return.
