The Little Egret was soon refound at the bottom of Park Field in a flooded area, this area also held 4 COMMON SNIPE. Through the woods, I heard the LESSER SPOTTED WOODPECKER again, along with MARSH TIT and TREECREEPER.

At the far end of the wood another Litte Egret was seen dropping into the stream and a few COMMON GULLS were again round the pig enclosure. 8 ducks appeared from behind the trees, 2 of which were MANDARIN, both males, I think the rest were Mallard but I got distracted by the Mandarin and by the time I rechecked them they were too far away!! As the Mandarin disappeared 3 GREYLAG GEESE flew east. One YELLOWHAMMER was hopping around where there have been 50-70 recently, as I made my way back a SPARROWHAWK upset a few Woodpigeon and 3 LAPWING shared the field with part of the resident Sheep flock.
