Thursday 31 December (15:15 to 16:00) Greenfinch roosts numbered 260+ in total! 110 at the southern end of the paddock and 150+ at the holly area in the SE corner of the wood. BRAMBLING totalled 60 at the northern end of the paddock, 2 at the southern end with the Greenfinch, 3 at the holly roost with the other Greenfinch and 49 just west of the The Penna intersection.
Friday 01 January (15:15 to 16:00) Only 100 Greenfinch noted; 60 at south paddock area and 40 at SE holly (but sounded as though many more were already roosted). BRAMBLING up to 65 with 3 at paddock north and 62 west of The Penna.
On both days the Brambling near The Penna were grouped mainly in one beech to the north side of the rhododendron ride, but others tucked in a little further west amongst oak and beech (Kevin Holt)
