Wednesday 13th November 2013

Out at 07:00 this morning hoping for a little vismig, for the first three quarters of an hour it was just a case of recording the local birds. Then around 07:40 three flocks of Woodpigeon moved south toward Rockley and Purbeck I then spotted a flock moving west. Like on Sunday I stood on the bench to give me a better northerly view, and almost immediately saw another large flock moving west and others followed until it petered out around 08:30. Again as with Sunday they were passing in a line north of Upton over Limberlost heading towards Lytchett Minster there were flocks further north too far away to count.
