A Goosander (redhead) was seen flying over the Back Lane/Butts Lane triangle just after mid-day (TMH). This is a great record as usually only one or two days a year there are single birds recorded on Captains Pool. Also of note were c.200 Linnets in the Stanklyn Lane beet field (TMH).
I managed to do a quick whistle stop tour of the patch early afternoon and recorded 10 Corn Buntings, 40 Linnets and 1 Yellowhammer at Butts Lane. Also, 3 Mallard flew over. Heath Lane was fairly quiet a ♀ Kestrel was present at the model aircraft field and 3 Corn Buntings were on the wires at the paddock. A further 7 Corn Buntings were seen along Witch Lane. 2 Skylarks were seen having a 'sing off' and 9 Stock Doves were feeding in the stubble.
