16th November

The Woodcocks were flushed in this area.
If you stand by the tall Limes behind the Gorse you could get lucky, with Woodcock and Tawny Owl just before dusk.

Woodcock: Two birds were flushed in area 29 at 9.30am. We thought we should check out the wood for the first time in a week. With a bit of luck these birds might come out just before dusk and feed on the tracks and grass outside area 29 and in area 30. It would be best to stand by the Lime trees and wait patiently scanning the boundary of the wood. Don't get locked in
Chiffchaff: 1 calling and showing well in the tall Poplar trees outside area 29.
Redwing: Three in area 29 and at least one feeding in the Yew trees at the top of Chester Road, area 12.
Siskin: At least one bird heard several times around area 26.
Common Teal: Three drakes and a female flying between area 1 and 26.
