My birding walk today wasn't really much of a walk! I skirted the outer edges of the car park then stood in the overflow car park for the remainder of my visit. I was happy with 36 species in 50 minutes! The main reason for standing still was that there were several REDWINGS going over, 229 in total for the short time I was there. As well as these, the other highlights were, 1 BRAMBLING, 1 FIELDFARE, 43 CHAFFINCH, 30+ SISKIN, 20+ REDPOLL, 18 SKYLARK, 5 HERRING GULL, 1 GREY HERON, 1 COMMON GULL, 9 GOLDFINCH, 2 CHIFFCHAFF, 1 BLACKCAP and the LITTLE OWL called from Park Field, oh yes, and I think there was a partridge in there somewhere!!! Anyway it was a really enjoyable start to the day, Brambling being a real bonus as I haven't heard of too many in the county as yet, it gave it's buzzy call and I picked it up on the edge of a 15 strong Chaffinch flock. The bird species total for the month stands at 57. Unfortunately the light never got above a murky grey and the birds were no more than silhouettes in the lens.
