Very little worth mentioning was seen during another very quiet day. At least four Water Rails were heard squealing, although, as usual, more probably went undetected. A few more finches were counted in the morning, including 60 Chaffinches, 15 Linnets, ten Goldfinches, three Lesser Redpolls, a Brambling and the Bullfinch. 12 Skylarks were in the North West Fields, two Merlins and a Sparrowhawk were seen hunting and 200 Starlings were feeding in the lowlands. Two Goldcrests and six Chiffchaffs were counted, and thrush numbers had fallen to just 15 Blackbirds, five Song Thrushes, a Fieldfare, a Mistle Thrush and a single Redwing.
