19th March 2017

A gathering of some 19 Pied Wagtails was feeding in the Legal & General car park, the largest number recorded for some time. Working machinery in Broadfield attracted around 200 Herring Gulls for a short spell, a Chiffchaff was in Holly Wood, a Lesser Black-backed Gull flew over and 25 Fieldfares were counted. Other sightings in the CF sector included a Pheasant, a Common Buzzard, a Kestrel, a Collared Dove, a Meadow Pipit, seven Linnets and four Yellowhammers.
