|Ashes lane Field, I dog leg to the right at the Oak tree, to get to the Lakes|
I walked to the lakes first thing, via the Ashes lane Field (above & below), as you can see, the fields hold little habitat for wildlife, and only a GREEN WOODPECKER and 3 flyover SKYLARKS were of note here, oh for the days when it was a half abandoned tree nursery!

In the surrounding Scrubby Woods I tried my luck at finding such rarities as Woodcock, Firecrest or Lesser Spotted Woodpecker, but of course, being rarities, I had no luck...again, one day! I was able to locate TREECREEPER, NUTHATCH, BULLFINCH, COAL TIT and GOLDCREST easily enough though, and had some song from both MISTLE THRUSH and SONGTHRUSH to listen to.
I made my way back the way I came, and headed for the Greenhouse Grounds, noting many flocks of WOODPIGEONS flying over, all had between 30 - 40 individuals in them and they continued passing over for the next hour or so.
