En-route to the beach loads of Blackbirds, Song Thrushes, Robins, Dunnocks and Wrens in the bushes, plus 20 Fieldfares, two Siskins over, Linnets, Green and Great Spotted Woodpeckers, three Stonechats and a pair of Bullfinches. Passing the western end of Long Pits five Goldeneyes noted. The beach reserve was packed out with Lapwings, Golden Plovers, Curlews and the like while a Spoonbill and Spotted Redshank showed well on the pool by the caravan park.
Hawthorn Corner - On the way home we crossed the Marsh checking the fields, but in truth there was very little of note until we turned the bend in the lane by the model flying club to be confronted by an enormous mixed flock of Fieldfares and Starlings. Approaching the junction birds were everywhere and it was quite a sight with over 1,000 birds plundering hawthorn berries.
A spectacular end to another great day in the field.
