Paid a visit mid to late afternoon, finishing at about 5:30. There were 4 Fieldfare and 2 Redwing feeding on Ivy berries in a tree near the play park. The Redwing were occasionally singing which you don’t often hear. A Phyllosc type warbler appeared briefly and my grabbed shot just as it started to take off, shows it was ringed. I don’t think it’s the Willow Warbler that Graham Smith had found there yesterday tho’. It’s a rubbish photo as it was distant so it’s a huge crop. At around 5 p.m. 30+ Sand Martins suddenly appeared – there had been none in the morning. They flew around until I left. Down near the wooden bridge in the wood on the left a male Blackcap was calling and then burst into song. Also had a a Chiffchaff there singing – again poor pix due to lack of light and sizeable cropping.
