Little'uns like chiffchaffs and goldcrests were hard to come by in Freeman's Wood with just two of each found this afternoon.
The only 'new' birds in the wood were thrushes, with at least 15 song thrushes (british-looking, mind!) skulking in the denser patches, and a typically noisy flock of 9 mistles on the rampage.
A quick squint through the branches towards Freeman's Pools revealed 10 wigeon by the island.
A migrant hawker was hawking over Lucy Brook despite the overcast and windy conditions.
