I had a 2hr.morning walk while Tommy was fishing at Stokes Hall . Along the river and down Eyes Lane.

Magpie. 10 Woodpigeon. B.H.Gulls. 2 Reed bunting. Greenfinch. Grey Wagtail. 2Oystercatchers. 1 Redshank. 13 Herring gulls (flew over). 2Cormorants. 3Lg.T.Tits. 6Shelduck. 1R.L.Partridge. Gt.Spotted Woodpecker. treecreeper. Blue Tits. Nuthatch. 18 Jackdaws. H.Sparrows. (h) Tawny Owl. 1RABBIT.

Afternoon was spent watching Tommy fish , while the tawny Owl was calling twice from a nearby conifer tree. a single buzzard soaring overhead and a Kestrel kept putting in an appearance. a really enjoyable day in the sunshine.

But didnt manage any new ticks.
