I reached the Lakes and Scrubby Woods, finding the MUTE SWANS and KINGFISHER on the Ornamental Lake, along with 6 MALLARD and a few Moorhens. Just More Mallard and Moorhen were on the other two water bodies, but a GREY HERON dropped in whilst I was there.
I walked the Ashes Lane Field, the Pub Field, Migrant Alley and the Greenhouse Grounds with its associated copse, and was a bit disappointed with the lack of birds. A LITTLE OWL was on the old shack at the Ashes lane Field, 18 BLACK HEADED GULL were on the Pub Field, and Migrant Alley was only good for a few overflying SKYLARK, MEADOW PIPIT and HERRING GULLS. Only the female KESTREL was seen at the Greenhouse Grounds, the male probably off patch hunting today, a small flock of 15-20 GOLDFINCH were seen in the Alder trees, but apart from that it was down to finding DUNNOCKS, more Wrens and Robins, a couple of PIED WAGTAILS, 4 GREENFINCH, a SONGTHRUSH and a couple of JAYS.

Here's couple of last nights sunset images - bonus photo's :-)
