The weather was a good deal better than yesterday and I had three oktas cloud cover with a 10 - 15 mph southwesterly wind. As I headed off down the track a couple of Grey Partridges called in the half light and at the feeding station itself I had four Yellowhammers, ten Chaffinches and just 81 Tree Sparrows.
I had a short walk up the '97 hedge' and added Buzzard, two Reed Buntings and four Fieldfares to my totals. It was whilst walking here that I had the majority of the 1,391 'Pinkies' that flew over heading south in smaller skeins. In addition to the 'Pinks' I had nineteen Whooper Swans also.
Heading back to the car I had seven Lapwings on the stubbles and a Great Spotted Woodpecker flying from one of my peanut feeders to the woodland. Driving off the site I had a look on the flood for the Green Sand, but it wasn't around, but I did have a flock of eleven Corn Buntings and a calling Goldcrest.
