17th November extras
Bunged up with a cold so just did Fingers after DJB. DK had 12 Siskins & 2 Goosander fly-overs. Clocked the 3 L.Egrets & watched 2 fly off east (to Cardington/Cople?). For me - good views of 3 Goldcrest, ca.8 Bullfinch, Treecreeper, fem. Gt.Spot, & W.Rail. The waterbirds had (nearly) all disappeared under the trees, I think. Not as many Golfinch as earlier in the week, but Blackbirds seemed up to me. Song Thrushes very vocal. The walk round (anti-clockwise) was undisturbed except for all the birds singing or calling. Pleasant, if chilly. Didn't feel up to ringing, even though it promised to be good. Never mind.
