Three of yesterdays CHIFFCHAFF were around the picnic benches and another 4 were added at various points around the walk. Finches were represented by 2 GREENFINCH, 14 GOLDFINCH, 1 BULLFINCH, 10 LINNET, several CHAFFINCH and what sounded like a large flock of SISKIN, that unfortunately, I couldn't track down, they were doing that chattery call which I hear more when they are feeding but it sounded like they were flying over, even doing a full 360 and managing not to fall over, I still didn't find them!!
Also when they chatter it sometimes sounds like there are more than there really are. Probably the highlight of the walk were the 4 fly over YELLOW WAGTAILS, 3 together quite low and one following on a few seconds later. Around the hedges I managed to find 3 WHITETHROATS and good numbers of buntings again. A MEADOW PIPIT flew south and another single SAND MARTIN went through with SWALLOWS. Stephen was out yesterday and today, his highlights were Wheatear yesterday and Sedge Warbler and Kingfisher today. I'm going off patch to Dungeness with Dad tomorrow, hopefully there will be some bits about.
