This morning I popped in to the patch for half an hour before work, just as it got light, 11 MEADOW PIPIT flew over the car park a PIED WAGTAIL was down in the fields as I watched across the valley. Standing for about 10 minutes a few COMMON GULLS appeared flying east, I counted 159 in the 10 minutes. Another count which was pleasing was the 6 SONG THRUSHES together feeding with a couple BLACKBIRDS and 3 REDWINGS, certainly the most Song Thrushes I've seen in one place here for a while. Other birds this morning were SPARROWHAWK, GOLDFINCH, FIELDFARE (100+), NUTHATCH and a handful of YELLOWHAMMERS.
