After yesterday's 'We wuz robbed, Guv' Bird Race, it was back to the patch today and some more-leisurely ticking.
The Little Egret was on the Burn at 0900(unlike yesterday when it disappeared). Beacon Lane was productive, with four Greylag Geese over White Hall Farm (SE) and a calling Yellowhammer.
Near South Stream, 10 Grey Partridge flew low and north over the horse paddock.
No sight nor sound of the Willow Tit, and the same at Bassington Nature Reserve.
