Comments: A poor day after yesterday with virtually no finches and with visibility not condusive to seeing pinks. Meadow Pipits still trickeling through south with a few west. Snipe and Golden Plover still going strong however... more Goldies heard than could be counted but we did manage to see some. All Snipe were going west with Goldies south. A Dunnock was in the wood!
