Plenty of thrushes on the reserve this morning, dominated by Redwing and Blackbird, with a few each of Fieldfare and Song thrush and a singing Mistle Thrush. Bullfinch and Yellowhammer encountered at three locations each. Magpie, Jay and Raven seen plus a few Pied wagtail and Meadow Pipits on the stubble fields. Back in the reserve were Willow Tit, small flock of LT Tit, Treecreeper and Nuthatch. Pheasant calling.
Mammals:- Grey Squirrel, Roe deer across the fields, probably just outside the area.
