Also a Goldcrest fresh in along the cliffs, and 20+ Redwing, 3 Fieldfare in the hedgerows.

Birds hanging about included 5 Stonechat, ad Med Gull and a Northern Wheatear.

The Yellow -browed Warblers continue to arrive with two 'new 'birds at the pool this morning seen and heard well- a chicken chick-like 'sveeeet'. Also at the pool a fine flock of 9 Tree Sparrows, somewhat of a rarity down here being just about annual.

A newly arrived Redwing, tired and hungry.

Stonechat on sea-watching hide roof, awaiting cup-a soup cast offs maybe?
Dark Bush Cricket, female found by Rob
Back home a Spotted Flycatcher was seen from the church track.
