I'd have liked to spend the whole day on the patch but work limited my visit to a quick hour. Pishing round the bushes at Stodday revealed two chiffchaff and 6 goldcrest amongst the tit flocks. A merganser and great crested grebe were under the pylons. A mystery bunting flew over with a metallic call. The tone was rather reminiscent of a yellowhammers sound.
4 pied wags and 2 grey wags were at the sewerage works and 4 skylark flew over.
