Friday 26th October

A flock of about 70/80 Fieldfare and Redwings flew over while we were sat on the bench, and they landed in the trees adjacent the first field, when we reached the field they flew off north up the channel. A couple of years ago when we had the really cold spell the fields were often full with both Fieldfare and Redwings, but this year, because of the weather, Brian hasn’t been able to cut the grass.
Also while on the bench two woodpeckers flew over.
On the way back near the ramp there were Oystercatchers and Turnstones resting on the rocks just below the car park.
The swans and cygnets returned this afternoon, took off from the long pond and landed on the fishing pond, they have been away since 5th October.
