In the trees on the last stretch before the Penhill tunnel there were two singing Chiffchaffs and one Blackcap.  In Fremington Pill there were a few Teal, two Greenshanks, a few Shelduck, one Glossy Ibis, one Little Egret and a couple of Black tailed Godwit.  Along the foot path between Tews Lane and Sainsburys there were about eight Blackbirds, a few House Sparrows and a Robin.
