Beecroft & Timble Plantations - in murky conditions, 31 species were recorded on the BOG walk.
Siskin were few with no Redpoll heard or seen. Between 80 to 100 Goldfinch watched whilst feeding on thistle heads & in a feeding party, 30 LTT were counted. A Kestrel was recorded and a Red Kite drifted past in the mist. A Little Owl sat on a wall with feathers puffed out to keep warm. Jay, Nuthatch & GSW recorded but only by call due to the poor visibility. Goldcrest was seen but hard to find but Coal Tits were everywhere. Just a couple of Chiff-Chaff recorded.
