A short potter on a cold drizzly day produced 44 species including:
Spotted Flycatcher (my earliest record by 4 days, since I started keeping nature records in 1971) and 3 House Martins;
also Redstart, Pied Flycatcher, Blackcap, Chiff-Chaff, Willow Warbler, Grey Wagtail, Common Sandpiper, Bullfinch, Goosander, Mandarin dDuck (two or more of each, except the single female Redstart).
Eight Wheatears - half of them on various parts of the Golf Course and the others in the usual places at the end of Birch Close Lane. A pair watched at close quarters looked big and bulky and showed signs of being of the Greenland race.
