25 November, 2011

Had a nice stroll around the farm this morning, glourious day without any unexpected birds. The pools held good numbers of wildfowl including Mallard,Teal, Wigeon, Gadwall, Pochard, Tufted Duck, also 4 Little Grebe, 1 Great C Grebe, 2 Water Rail, 70+ Fieldfare in the area along with several Redwing. In the bushes there were 3 Bullfinch, 1 Goldcrest, 1 Chiffchaff and a Treecreeper. Good numbers of Skylark in the stubble field and several Yellowhammer.

Yesterday at Climping Beach, very slow offshore with only 1e Red-throated Diver, 2w Razorbill, 13w Brent Geese, 5 Great-crested Grebe, 1 Rock Pipit and 8 Grey Partridge to show for my efforts.
