Bird of the day was a female Ring Ouzel; initially found at Canons Farmhouse, it then flew towards Legal & General where it alighted next to the car park but was not seen again (SG). The first Hobby of the year for the CF sector was also noted, along with a Wheatear in Broadfield, a late Meadow Pipit and two Lesser Black-backed Gulls. Nine Whitethroats and eight Swallows were counted.
