Wildlife Sightings - October 2017

  • Wed 1st Nov, 2017

It’s amazing how two autumns can be so different! After the Siberian high pressure weather system and birds of 2016 it was all about Atlantic storms from the west in October 2017. Despite the shift there were many highlights. Rarest sightings include a massive Leatherback Turtle and a Cliff Swallow.

Warm westerly weather systems dominated September 2017. Despite the lack of easterly winds this was a busy month and there were some great birds and other wildlife around and at the end of the month the visual migration watchers got their rewards big time!
