Autumn migration & Ink-caps

I went out earlier today to look for fungi  and, after finding that some shaggy ink-caps that I wanted to photograph had passed their best, I got distracted by the activities of the birders watching for migrants at Wintersett. I joined them for an hour

as their count of meadow pipits for the morning topped 500. As the day warmed up, some interesting birds came through. We saw a flock of 10 ruff, a group of 4 grey wagtails and a single merlin all on autumn migration.
