Saturday afternoon took a walk down to Salwarpe Church. On the Copcut Lane side of the Churchfields Maize Maze field came across a large flock of finches. On closer inspection there were about 60 Chaffinches. I did scan for Brambling but with no luck.

A pair of Goosander flying over the flood water between Linacre Bridge and Mildenham Mill . Cettis calling in 2 or 3 places between Porters Mill and Linacre Bridge. Flood water forcing them higher up in reeds maybe.
