19th December

Male Sparrowhawk trying to be invisible above the feeders in area 24.

Hybrid Pochard X ----- in area 26 at feeding time.

Lapwing: Two sightings, one a flock of 8 flew N 11.30am and a smaller group of three also flew N at 12.00pm.
Water Rail: Two in the rail ditch at 8.00am, area 2.
Redwing: At least eighty birds seen, some flew straight through while others fed on berries. I even had a small flock feeding in my garden by St Marks Bridge. This was the first time in over thirty years, though birds have perched briefly.
Fieldfare: Again one bird was present in area 30.
