Bold = Remarkable observation (scarce or rare species or large number)
* = Additional info (on mouseover species)
Comments: A rapidly deteriorating morning with few birds very first thing but relocating thrushes soon got going. All Fieldfare south, low and being streamed by the various topography. We split up for a while so one of active the streams could be seen to better advantage. The Woodcock, shot through only feet from HC's head. Otherwise very little and very backendish!
