East Soar & Starehole

Early afternoon in quite breezy conditions found one Yellow-browed Warbler and a Goldcrest in the willows below the farm. In the valley, 2 possibly 3 Ring Ouzel (1 male & 1 1st winter), 4 Blackcap, 3 Chiffchaff + 1 very probable Garden Warbler.  Worryingly a Sparrowhawk was hunting around the hawthorns where the Ouzels were feeding.  100's Pipits with a few Skylarks and Wagtails, but no Swallows, near the airfield
