Monday 20th Sampford Peverel

I went for a walk on a beautiful sunny afternoon along the Bank of Grand Western canal . Amongst the usual suspects was an unusual pattered Buzzard, 2 fighting Kingfishers and flock after flock of Fieldfares and Redwings in the hundreds and also good flocks of migratatory male Blackbirds.

My highlight was a group of 8 Lesser Redpolls including males, females and first winter young.
