Back to today, and everything is very much staying the same on my patch, migration has come to a halt, and is for the most part over now. My hope for an addition to the month or year list will lie on seeing a duck species on the lake, or something nice flying over.
So it was off to the lake again this afternoon to try my luck, but alas, it was MALLARDS and MOORHENS again, with a GREY HERON thrown in today. Around the bankside vegetation a couple of NUTHATCH collected and ate seeds, and a GOLDCREST was calling, but I didn't locate a feeding flock today. A nearby garden had a KESTREL fly down and sit amongst the Marigolds, a strange site :-)
It then flew up and did some proper hunting.
I checked the Tree Nursery, but it was all SONGTHRUSH'S and BLACKBIRDS there again, however the Maize stubbles in the adjacent Pub Field had a tractor harrowing the field, so a quick scan of that was had. 15 BLACK HEADED Gulls were feeding on the disturbed soil, as well as a few PIED WAGTAILS and about 30 STARLINGS, but no sign of that Mediterranean Gull for the year List :-)
