6 Redwings feeding amongst the leaf litter at the back of the clearing in front of the hide.  Nuthatch there as well.  2 elusive Fieldfares in the meadow favouring the small holly bushes.  Obliging female Kestrel close by being mobbed by Meadow Pipits.  4 Linnets over and 3 mobile Mistle Thrushes.  5 Pied Wagtails.  2 calling Buzzards circling towards the north. 

Also, a male Blackcap in my back garden in Shiphay, Torquay for the last two days.
