Limited coverage at the farm produced nothing 'better' than two Mistle Thrushes and five Meadow Pipits. The fog tempted a few gulls onto Legal & General in the morning, including a single Common Gull among 52 Black-headed and 19 Herring Gulls. An influx of Blackbirds was quantified as a minimum of 50 birds.

Two Little Owls were heard in the evening, which is when the wind chose to pick up and a blank was drawn on the Barn Owl vigil which was maintained until nearly 17:00.

The only other birds to report from the farm were two Pheasants, two Common Buzzards, a Kestrel, 50 Fieldfares, five Redwings, five Song Thrushes, two Pied Wagtails, a Bullfinch, a Greenfinch, 175 Linnets and three Yellowhammers.
