West End:- 3 Great Crested Grebe, 2 Egyptian Geese, 1 Coot, 2 Marsh Tit, 1 Coat Tit, 5 Blue Tit.
Whillet’s:- 1 Grey Heron, 1 Sparrowhawk, 1 Kestrel, 2 Water Rail heard, 1 Moorhen heard, 2 Tawny Owl heard, Green Woodpecker heard, 1 Great Spotted Woodpecker, Song Thrush heard, 2 Crow.
Reed-bed roost count between 14:30 & 16:30 ~ 81 Reed Buntings, 2540 Starling.
The early starling flocks were coming in several hundred strong. There were no big murmurations and later flocks were much smaller (over 60 separate flocks). Some birds were flying directly in singly – Reed Bunting style which needed more concentration than usual on ID for the Reed Bunting count. A Sparrowhawk showed once right at the end and silenced the Starlings as it flew over. But it did not actively hunt and the birds resumed their incessant chatter.
