The Pinnacle, Sandy

Here are two views from The Pinnacle (also called locally the Sand Hills) from where I look for visible migration, or vismig for short. I started last autumn and did a few days here and there, with two exceptional ones. On 2nd November 2006 we had around 8000 birds fly over us in around two hours. This included over 5000 Fieldfares and 2500 Redwings! Outstanding counts for Bedfordshire. The next day we saw around 2500 birds, which was still a fantastic mornings birding.

This autumn (2007) we are doing the same again, but hopefully spending a few more mornings 'on the hill'.
