All birds found on the tops, lower slopes empty: 3 COMMON REDSTARTS / 10+ Common Chiffchaff/ c 150 Meadow Pipit, 60 in flock on ground in aerial field, 40 feeding at same time on S/E slope, 20 top of N slope and groups of 4-6 seeming to pass overhead for 3 hrs/

Abnormal numbers of Blue Tits on tops - migrants perhaps?/Sparrowhawk chasing Green Woodpecker, it missed!!

No Wheatears for first time in a while, but had 1 yesterday (Tim Watts)
