Not a lot of interest around the patch this morning with just 4 Stonechat around West Beach, also 45 Greenfinch amongst the veg shingle there with a single Linnet and 2 Meadow Pipit. At least 3 Bullfinch in the area, and small numbers of Goldcrest amongst the Long T Tit flocks. A  Cetti's Warbler heard from the back of the golf course and a Kingfisher flushed from the sluice. Singles of Jay, Buzzard, Song Thrush and 2 Great-spotted Woodpecker had me heading home.
