2nd November 2018
From 09:30 I stood at the Monument and had a few Redpolls, Siskins, Goldfinches and a single Crossbill moving overhead. At about 10:00 I met Richard who had walked from Kingsdown and after a chat he decided to walk back via the wood. I started to walk to the Paddock when I had a call from Richard that he had just had a Rough-legged Buzzard going out to sea. I rushed back to the car for the telescope and we scanned for the bird. By the time we did find it, the bird was going down channel and appeared to be halfway to France. Oh well perhaps the next rarity will be more co-operative.
