29th October 2018

Richard braved the winds and rain to walk from Kingsdown to the Farm Wood recording 38 Crossbills over plus three Firecrests 10 Goldcrests and a Ring Ouzel.

After a short look at the sea in which a 24 Brents, five Shelduck and  went North, I covered the Paddock, Gun Emplacement, Farm Wood and Clifftop. The brisk northerly wind with occasional rain showers made it hard going but I managed a Woodcock, flushed from the Gun Emplacement, 32 Goldcrests and two Chiffchaffs. Overhead there were an additional six Crossbills , three Bramblings and 45 Starlings


There were a number of grounded thrushes with 18 Fieldfares in the fields, 10 Song Thrushes at the Gun Emplacement and 12 Blackbirds together in the Farm Wood
