After last week's truly awful session when all the birds were absent, today's visit to a lower altitude location was rather more successful, with more than 30 bird species identified. The bird of the morning was seen in the first five minutes when a Peregrine Falcon sent up every Woodpigeon and Black-headed Gull sheltering in a mini-quarry. However, all 3 photographers were so taken by surprise that no photos of the bird were taken. Meanwhile, towards the end of the session the group were charmed by a very showy male Goldcrest, which displayed the full inner depths of its crest for at least five minutes. There was a flock of 7 Bullfinches with others seen along the course of our walk. There was also a winterflock of 10+ (mainly male) Yellowhammers, whilst a few brave souls had already set up their territories elsewhere on the route. Distant views of Buzzards and red Kites were seen in the morning, but in the afternoon a Red Kite gave a really long fly-past in very strong winds. Other birds seen included: Red-legged Partridge, Marsh Tit, Lapwing, Common Gull and Goldfinch.
