Upon returning, in excess of 25 redpolls, with the haul containing 3 common or mealy redpolls which had earlier been noted in the trees. A lot paler than the lesser jobs. Common redpoll being year lister 207.
Other birds taken were just dunnock, chiffchaff and a couple of robins, both controlled.
Canada geese were overhead and plenty of curlews in an adjacent field whilst a grey wagtail got on to the list as it flew over the bird obs as I was about to leave.
Lovely stay at a really busy bird observatory.
