29th September

After all the Buzzards going through the area the previous day, I decided to make an effort today and was sat on my perch at a local watchpoint by 10.30am. First thing I had was a jay going east followed by a local Buzzard and 2 Sprarrowhawks. The first of several Kestrels began to hunt at 11.00am followed by another Sparrowhawk and another and another, in the end I had 11 sightings of Spars in just over 3 hours. The buzzard was picked up again just before leaving at 1.45pm. Also of note was a Great Spotted Woodpecker north, 10 Greenfinch north, 20 Linnets south, several Pied Wags and Meadow Pipits moving, a couple of Swallows south, 1 LBBG, several Common and Black-headed Gulls also.
A walk later over Roils Head, 1 Chiffchaff still there, then off to feed the local Black-heads and try for some flight shots.
