A bit of overhead movement this morning: 1 Wood Lark, 2 Skylark, 3 Bullfinch, 34 Chaffinch, 6 Brambling, 12 Goldfinch, 4 Meadow Pipits, 40+ Wood Pigeon.

Around the Headland: 2 Ring Ouzels still present below cafe in Northern Fort, 13 Goldcrest, 2 Firecrest, 2 Chiffchaff, 1 Blackcap, 8 Redwing, 38 Blackbirds, 4 Coal Tits 1 Stonechat - but most suprising were 4-5 Water Rail calling from the scrubby area west of the road from the wardens bungalow to Berry Head Hotel, it is very damp at the moment but there has obviously been a bit of an influx! I have heard the odd one from the same area before but not for 6-7 years.
