Tree sprogs and finches enjoy the harvest

Following a clear night, this morning had an autumn feel with the temperature down to 3c as we trawled the Grandborough valley finding a good flock of finches at woodbine farm with at least 100 Greenfinch and 100 Linnet feeding on spilled seed in a recently harvested field. Further along Flecknoe rd at least 75 Tree Sparrow were doing the same opposite the Baseley small holding, also Chiffchaff and 5 Buzzard in the area.
The mist was just burning off when we arrived at the pond but all we had was 5 Yellow Wagtail, Teal, Snipe and Common Sandpiper and the only thing we saw differently at Napton Reservoir from yesterdays visit was Small Copper butterfly and 2 juvenile Shoveler.
