Nice walk round the Beacon area with Chris King produced a fair size flock of Fieldfares, c60, together with Redwings, Song Thrushes and Blackbirds. Seemed to be a good number of Bullfinches (mostly heard)in the scrub area around Steps Hill. In the sheep field area 1 male Stonechat and 2 Wheatears and Raven 'enjoying' the strong breeze on the top together with 1 kestrel. No luck with any ouzels

Parked at the Cemetery at Wilstone and in the field with the crap apple tree flock of at least 12 Mistle Thrushes and 40+ Fieldfares. 160 Golden Plover on the spit out from the jetty + 1 possibly 2 Rock Pipits and 1 WATER PIPIT and a feeding Pintail (Francis Buckle).
