In amongst the finches there were small numbers of Brambling, Redpoll and Siskin. The Willow Trail held 2 Chiffchaffs , 2 Redpollsand a single Goldcrest. From the hide The only extra to yesterday was a fine Drake Goldeneye.
There was a Yellow Legged Gull in the fishing boat roost and then the rain came.
