Totals: 718 individuals, 11 species, 3:00 hours

Comments: A lively first hour with finches to the fore and a nice single flock of 7 Brambling the highlight. Starlings were on the go west throughout, using their usual routes. From 08.45 hrs, the morning was afflicted by a dogged heavy drizzle band which made observation difficult, hence an undercount.
