This afternoon (Saturday 28 March), I recorded a reasonable total of 23 species in Penn Wood.
COMMON RAVEN (constantly calling from tops of firs for half an hour or so, moving to different trees and "bouncing" along some of the branches)
LESSER REDPOLL (6)
Nuthatches and Treecreepers getting active
17 BRAMBLING (over three roost areas)(6 notified by a group of folk from Middlesex in one of the areas where I have not seen many birds recently)
c110 Greenfinch spread over two roost areas
Brambling & Greenfinch dropping to roost at 17:00, whereas a week ago it was still the regular 16:30 (Kevin Holt)
