goldcrest

Local RSPB Group planned visit.

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.
