14 Lesser Redpolls were feeding in the birches between Piddly Pond and the Harholt Plantation. A ♀ Stonechat was at Slangs and a pair were in Hillwood Field, where seven Common Buzzards drifted northeast and two Meadow Pipits were seen. Another seven Common Buzzards were seen over the CF sector. A Pied Wagtail flew over Poultry Field and two Kestrels were seen mating at the caravan site. 70 Redwings were in Green Belt Field.

Piddly Pond was brought to life by much raunchy Common Frog activity.
