The sun just creeping above the cloud bank a little after sunrise.
There was not quite so much bird activity as yesterday morning, a SPARROWHAWK flew from the Greenhouse Grounds as I arrived, but there were still a few SISKIN and GOLDFINCHES in the Alders there, plus a CHIFFCHAFF called from nearby, the female KESTREL meanwhile, sat up in its nest box which is on the roof of the boiler building.
A circuit of Migrant Alley was only notable for flyovers today, which included a YELLOWHAMMER, a few SKYLARKS, LESSER REDPOLLS, MEADOW PIPITS and SISKINS, plus a GREY WAGTAIL that headed for the Greenhouse Grounds and a GREY HERON flying SE. The hundreds of GREYLAG and CANADA GEESE in their huge skeins flew across again, so my thought that they may be moving on was proved wrong :-)
Walking across the Ashes Lane Fields a pair of REDWING flew from cover, then entering the Wet Woods a party of half a dozen or so LONG TAILED TITS were seen, with them were at least 3 GOLDCREST and 2 TREECREEPERS, along with a few BLUE and GREAT TITS.
The lakes were a big disappointment today, just a sickly looking Canada Goose, and 2 MOORHENS were seen, but to be honest it's always a bonus to see anything much more on them :-) A COAL TIT called from the adjacent Scrubby Woods, but it was genarally quite there today. On the walk back through the Small Holding area, a LITTLE OWL called and a BUZZARD flew over, heading for the Wet Woods.
Little chance of any photo's during my walk, but I got a few images from my garden feeders before the sun disappeared ;-)
