Fieldfare (Tim Watts) - one of 300 at Berryfields today

Calvert; 2 Common Snipe/ yesterday Gareth Leese had 4 PINTAIL on BBOWT lake

Hillesden; 11 Mipits/ c200 mixed finches/1 Siskin/

Berryfields, Northern section farmland; c300 Fieldfare/6 Yellowhammer

Berryfields A41 layby; With Pete Garner saw a definite 5 SHORT-EARED OWLS and quite possibly 6. Good views in sunlight as main action tonight was 2:30-3p.m. Owls dispersed and long periods up until dark when only 1 or none seen, shame as quite a lot of birders arrived at what is normally best time.It was heavy rain here last night so guess why up early tonight; 2 seen to fly S/E out of rough grass area. There is more rough ground in that direction at back of Weedon housing developement but hard to access (Tim Watts)
