Visible migration on the Malvern Hills

After seeing the forecast for the morning I thought it would be a fantastic opportunity to see what birds were migrating around this part of the country.
My route took me as follows: Walking from Great Malvern, up past St Annes Well, along the contour path, circular route around the top of North Hill (just in case!!), then back down the zig zag path down to the North Quarry car park.   Although quite windy at the top the amount of birds flying over was quite interesting.
Heres the list:

1 male RING OUZEL (around west side of North Hill feeding on the rowan)
23 Chaffinch
3 Redpoll
48 Woodpigeon
5 Raven
14 Carrion Crow
4 Jackdaw
25 Meadow Pipits
1 Green Woodpecker
5 Skylark
73 Redwing heading northwest
3 Wheatear on southern path of North Hill
4 Linnets
5 Goldfinch
3 Bullfinch
2 Wren
2 Dunnock

Quite a decent list for two hours birding!
