Lutley Wedge 23/03/12 (8°c/18°c) Mist, fog and low cloud clearing later am. Wind (Var E/SE) F1/2)

Extensive fog and low cloud not suprisingly put a block on visible migration early am though a handful of Meadow Pipits pressed on even through the murk first thing, and a flock of 60 were grounded. A flock of 8 Redpoll flew SE and there was a noticable increase in Chiffchaff around the patch but it  was otherwise quiet.
1 ♂ Swallow 
8 Chiffchaff (5 new)
76 Meadow Pipit (16➝N/NE) (60 in)
9 Redpoll sp (8➝SE) (1➝SW)
6 Siskin (3➝SE) (3 in)
20 Redwing (14➝WSW) (2➝NW) (4 in)
Swallow and Redpoll 23/3/12

Great shots. Can't wait for the Swallows to arrive in east Kent.
