With these conditions the best place to find birds would be in sheltered areas, therefore, I spent some time at Threxton STW.
Once again, at least 3 Chiffchaffs were present at the site, and for much of the time these Warblers favoured long weedy cover, including dead Umbellifer stalks, where they hunted for small insect prey.

Great Tits, Blue Tits, Coal Tit, Treecreeper, Dunnock, Wrens, and a female Reed Bunting were all present.
Goldcrest was singing in the Leylandii belt and the Yew tree in the churchyard.
Finally, within the interior of the STW, 60+ Pied Wagtails were seen.
