Yarmouth cemy migrants

An early start at Gt Yarmouth cemetery in the hope of some migrants produced a few nice things.

In the early dawn light a Hawfinch flew over and I was lucky enough to see it land at the top of a bare tree, it was barely light so the pic below is not bad considering! Glad to see another of these beauties after getting a flyover at Strumpshaw on Monday, so good to see it on the deck too.

A huge long tailed tit flock carried at least 2-4 Firecrests, always a joy to see.

Just as I was about to call it a day a Yellow Browed Warbler started calling loudly, this showed well briefly, but not well enough for any pics. Always feels more autumnal with these little stripy jobs around.

Patch update;
1 Ring Ouzel last Sunday
Hawfinch flyover on Monday
2 Snow Buntings flew over the office yesterday (so glad I was walking in the yard when they went over! not easy in Mid Yare)
Total: 154, very happy with the score so far, especially seeing as my target was 150!
