Over at the lakes a GREY HERON was fishing contentedly, and a dozen MALLARD plus 5 MOORHENS dabbled about, while watching the lakes a Corvid gave the ''Raptor'' call and looking up I saw a BUZZARD fly over. Two more Goldrest, a TREECREEPER, NUTHATCH, GREEN and GREAT SPOTTED WOODPECKERS plus a few BULFINCH were seen in the Scrubby Wood.
After an hour or so I made my way back over to the Tree Nursery, and Pub Field, where a GREY WAGTAIL was feeding on the run off pool, on the Pub Field, just the Corvids and WOODPIGEONS fed, but as i scanned over the field, a flock of 5 LAPWING went over, sadly they didn't come down to join the Pigeons :-( . A KESTREL hunted over the hedgerow between the Pub Field and Tree Nursery, then a few moments later the SPARROWHAWK was seen up hunting over the Wet Woods and the gardens along Ashes Lane. The only other bird of note was a single YELLOWHAMMER that flew over.
Ive got the next three days off work, so weather permitting I should be out for full patch walks for the rest of the week :-)
