This morning another great local group joined me in slightly windier conditions but nice bright sunshine at times certainly was appreciated. The highlights were a couple of LESSER REDPOLL and 9 SISKIN feeding together by the lake, which also produced several FIELDFARE and REDWING in the next field. It was hard going but we did find 31 species. A GREEN WOODPECKER showed well in nice light as a BUZZARD flew behind it. After the group left I spent a short time looking across the valley, this was brightened by a male MERLIN (60) which flew low across the field next to Digdog Lane.
