There was a little sunshine this morning, but also variable amounts of cloud rolling through from time to time on a moderate North wind.

Once again  I walked the farmland areas of my patch, the 3 hours I spent out came up with much the same as the past few visits, with the GREY WAGTAIL feeding at the Greenhouse Grounds, where there was also a CHIFFCHAFF present. The STONECHATS appeared again, this time all three were feeding along the hedgerow that forms the boundary between Migrant Alley and the Greenhouse Grounds.

I watched 5 SWALLOWS fly over Migrant Alley, where there were also flyovers, from GREY HERON, MEADOW PIPIT, PIED WAGTAIL, SKYLARK and SISKIN of note. Two BUZZARDS were up soaring, plus a SPARROWHAWK was hunting around the Ashes Lane Fields, but there was no Kestrels to be seen, they have been absent since the 7th Oct.
