Overhead, a buzzard, magpie and jay along with stock dove, wood pigeon and carrion crow. No winter thrushes or finches that I have seen here in October's past, far too warm at present.
Wrens, chaffinches and robins called, as did a single coal tit, but nothing else was noted. A superb walk along a very peaceful and tranquil habitat. Great to have visited again.
