Good numbers of Warblers seen and heard including Blackcaps, Chiffchaffs, and a single Willow Warbler. Two pairs of Reed Buntings were found, both in suitable breeding habitat.
On open land a pair of Curlews seen, also a pair of Oystercatchers flew in. This area also held a pair of Shelduck and a pair of Egyptian Geese.

At 0750, a small flock of 18 Fieldfare passed through,briefly stopping before continuing their passage. I don't think there will be too many more winter Thrushes passing through now as most would have left for Northern Europe, however, I have in previous years seen stragglers as late as May.
It was in this woodland carr where I watched a large, beautiful Scots Pine, in full sun. This short watch saw both Marsh Tit and Coal Tit moving nimbly amongst pine needles in search for food. Here, a Willow Warbler arrived, giving a couple of half-hearted bursts of song, before chasing one of the Tit species away.
