Rocky VII or IX

No Sylvestor Stallone hasn't resurrected Rocky Balboa for another film but refers to the Rock Pipits at the pond this morning. Bob and I had seven on farborough and toft bank and on my return I counted nine. Unfortunately that was the highlight of our visit as the low cloud just about put paid to any visible migration though Skylark (56) and Siskin (32) trickled over low while at least another 7 Jays noted. Other birds present included 6 House Martin, 3 Swallow, Sparrowhawk, Chiffchaff, 3 Shoveler and 3 Yellow-legged Gulls but no sign of the Common Scoter.
Due to the road diversions more Jays were noted in the valley as we avoid the speed merchants.

    A request if you don't mind : Could you arrange for some GN Divers this year at the pond I've missed them.
