Fieldfare - 110 - a flock of 90 moving purposely NW being the obvious highlight.
Blackbirds - numerous/conspicuous but nothing to suggest any further immigration

Sky Lark - two
Reed Bunting - at least 45 in the caulis
Pied/alba Wagtail - 42 feeding on St. Luke's playing field and several other around the farm
Goldfinch - two flocks, noisily north - possibly 40 birds - plus many others around the hedgerows.
Greenfinch - three?
Chaffinch - 350+ around the paddocks
Brambling - 200+ associating with the chaffinches - spectacular
