Three Cormorants and a Grey Heron flew over the farm by mid-morning, as did 320 Herring Gulls. A Little Owl was showing on the east side of Horse Pasture, a Rook flew over and four juvenile Common Buzzards were seen. The Common Gull count reached seven but all were adults. 32 Skylarks and three Yellowhammers were noted, along with 26 Chaffinches scattered around Reads Rest Lane. Thrush numbers were low, with only around 10 of both Fieldfare and Redwing.
