Plenty of Fieldfares

Managed a brief visit to Wilstone reservoir this afternoon. Concentrated on the shoreline and surrounding fields. No sign of the Water Pipit (but that's not unusual). 2 Grey Wagtails and 3 Pied Wagtails. A Common Buzzard and a Little Egret were perched in seperate trees, north-west of the reservoir. Approx 200+ Fieldfare and Redwing around the reservoir (80% Fieldfare, I'd estimate). 120+ birds in the field/bushes by the new overflow on the NW bank. Another 80+ birds in cemetery corner woods and along the back of the dry canal. The Marsh Tit looked lovely in the sunshine and was very vocal (on the track leading from cemetery corner woods up to the dry canal). 2+ Lesser Redpoll feeding on seedheads along the dry canal. A small flock (10+) of Goldfinches with 3+ Chaffinches were also feeding on seedheads around cemetery corner.
