15th October

A Brambling was heard over the farm, where three Stonechats, the adult female Peregrine and three Mistle Thrushes also made for highlights. 180 Linnets and 15 Yellowhammers were counted at the farm. Two more Stonechats were in Hither Field and elsewhere in the Banstead Woods sector were four Chiffchaffs, a Rook, four Meadow Pipits, seven Bullfinches and a Pheasant.

A Southern Hawker buzzed around Piddly Pond and two Brimstones were about the Woods.
