The final day of the year saw another Great Black-backed Gull record, this bird flying south over the Chipstead Valley late morning (IPW). The wintering pair of Stonechats was still in Hither Field and a Woodcock flew from the Estate area. Other BW sightings included a fly-over Lesser Black-backed Gull, 45 Goldfinches and a Kestrel. 80 Fieldfares and 45 Redwings were at CF.
