Just one more session at each after the 15th then the season this year is over; don't think I will bother to do any extras.
On the up side went for a walk over the common this morning (11/03) before the park run arrived. At least four Chiffchaff singing in the fog. Two Lapwing displayed on the Fire Plane Gravel. (there was a pair in the gravel east of Eastovers yesterday), no sign of any Ringed Plover yet. Several other species singing including the first Linnet I have heard this year. On Sandleford Heath a flock of 10+ Redwings and the first reasonable gathering of Lesser Redpoll for me, a flock of 20+ and one of 8+. Only the second sighting of this species I've had so far in 2017.
