SE 1-3, 8 Oktas, a little light drizzle at first.
I thought the weather looked promising for something grey with an orange tail, but there wasn't a BR on the marsh debris this morning.. (is this even on the Aldcliffe list, Jon?)
I switched to look for stripy easterners in the sycamores and willows, with no success.
So, the parish passerine highlights were:
A chiffchaff, goldcrest, blackcap, lesser redpoll and 22 song thrushes in the wood.
Also 45 reed buntings and two tree sparrows in and around the maize field.
