Gusts meant we did not erect nets in exposed places, so fewer nets than normal.

Also seen/heard :
Greylag geese
Buzzard
Grey partridge (1 escaped from the net)
Golden plover c.200
Tawny owl
Great spotted woodpecker
Skylark
Wren
Song thrush
Fieldfare 8 then c.30
Long-tailed tit
Linnet

As usual lots of tree sparrow (30+) present skillfully avoiding nets, but also applied to yellowhammer (50+).

Mainly forgetting corvids, gulls, non-natives, pigeons and tits.

Many thanks to all concerned, Mike.
