At Ivinghoe Hills today, up to 4 NORTHERN WHEATEARS were present (Chaz Jackson/Don Otter), with a TREE PIPIT north early morning (Mike Wallen). No Ring Ouzels were left over from the influx in the week, nor were any Common Redstarts found (Blows Downs has had one male of the latter so far)

At Wendover Woods, 4 COMMON CROSSBILLS were noted around the car park (per Bucks Bird Club Field Meeting) and the woodland escarpment held at least 7 singing male FIRECRESTS.

The first male COMMON REDSTART of the year showed well for about half an hour at Lodge Hill, in scrub by the junction (Warren Claydon), this site also yielding a male RING OUZEL two weeks ago, the first to be recorded there.
