Saturday 17th October

Over 200 Redwings through this morning in three groups that we saw. Also a Siskin over while we stood at the Crescent. Minimum of 10 Teal flushed as I walked around the back of Fingers, they took me by surprise as I only saw a few and then suddenly Teal were flying up from everywhere! The Sparrowhawk was about early this morning and a Kestrel was spotted later over the Rough. A couple of female Shoveler and 4 Little Grebe on Fingers. The Fingers Swan family were having a bit of flying practice as were the main lake family later. Several groups of Swans passed through north east. Still ~50 Coot on the main lake .

A walk along the cycle track bagged 21 Lapwing on 100 Acre by the larger pit, also several pheasant on this recently ploughed area. Shame that all the teasels have gone as we were hoping for something interesting to make a snack stop there through the autumn. Also had a young Buzzard down by Meadow Lane, with the usual Crow in attendance.
