Sightings 23 Species: A short list today. A singing Woodlark when I arrived, also a Dartford and two Stonechat calling. Canada Geese flew northwest as the nets went up. The usual flock of Goldfinch feeding on grass seed flew into the enclosure as I took the nets down as did a Dartford Warbler. Two Skylarks flying about with the odd Meadow Pipit and a single Swallow through south as we left.
