Description of sighting

We were unable to find the Ring Ouzel reported on the previous day but that was more than made up for by a very obliging Yellow Browed Warbler in with a mixed flock of small birds including Goldcrest in the bushes near Brean Down Farm.The first Redwing were a bonus as was good sightings of Buzzard,Kestre,Peregrine and Sparrowhawk.Large numbers of Shelduck (650+) were also seen.
