TREE SPARROWS still surviving

Granborough hay store: 2 TREE SPARROWS with c100 Chaffinch/Yellowhanmmer.Didn't see any here last Winter so looks promising.

Calvert BBOWT; highlight, 2 LESSER REDPOLL! (uncommon here)

Hillesden Pools; 2 adult WHOOPER SWANS flew low over pools, then higher and flew a long way, towards Padbury area. If same returning pair, their valley bottom fields do not look suitable this year as just fresh plough. Also 22 EUROPEAN GOLDEN PLOVERS/c 350 mixed Linnet, Greenfinch and Chaffinch on set-aside strip.

Foxcote Reservoir; 10 COMMON GOLDENEYES

Grendon Underwood; c120 Linnet

Botolph Claydon; c 500 Starling

Berryfields A41 layby; 2 SHORT-EARED OWLS, 1 BARN OWL and 4 COMMON STONECHATS- Owls up at 3 pm but disturbed by 2 workers in flourescent jackets on tractor on ridge.
