On a grey morning (not ideal for seeing birds) fourteen species of birds were seen or heard, notably Tree Creeper, Dartford Warbler and Stonechat.  Redwings and Fieldfares had been there previously, but having devoured the berries, most had moved away.  However, a small flock flew over.  Through the ’scopes a Great Spotted Woodpecker was located in a Silver Birch tree.
