 Along drive upper part, Redwing numbers around 15 but always distant.

Heard this Greater Spotted Woodpecker first, chirp! chirp!  

Then a Green Woodpecker a few trees along.

Nothing new on lake a very large group of Corvid's around 50 + continual calling over college and lakes, with 2 large groups of Gulls on surrounding fields mostly Black Headed gull with a few Common gulls, around 50 +

House Sparrows along hedgerow by old farm seem to have gone no sign ?
More Gulls fielding on Horse fields and then a highlight a pair of Stonechats feeding in rain !
Bad Shots I know but raining it was !

Male best I could manage :( seen 2 Stonechats few weeks back on fields by Seven Acre but not seen before in Village, NICE !

Almost home and good timing me thinks :)
This looking across Pennyquick and towards Lansdown in the mist !

Thank For Looking !
