Few hours down the Valley this morning.

No sign of Firecrests near the gun placements,, though 17 Hawfinches flew west over the football pitch next to the golf course and disappeared over Priory woods.
There were roving tit flocks in trees beween Park Lane and the paddocks, which included several Goldcrests but no Firecrests.

30+ Siskin over the paddocks and a few Redpolls.
