Paul Clough:
1 Blackcap
2 Spotted Flycatchers,
6+ Bullfinch,
4+ Chiffchaff,
5+ Siskin,
10+ Chaffinch.

A larger flock of what appeared to be Siskin moved out of the bottom of the clough heading over the res.

14 Teal arrived at 1600hr, they quickly departed west
7 Common gull present.

Regarding your comments on the swimming Squirrel on the 1/9, I found one on the wall on 31/8 in a semi comatose state, then on the 1/9 at 1500hr I also observed one swimming across the reservoir. It also appeared to drown two thirds of the way across. What, I wonder is inducing this Lemming like behaviour, could it be Magic mushrooms? or feeding on overripe Elderberries?
