With a full moon showing through a thin layer of cloud I
thought I would do the pond at first light hoping for migrants and owls. The
male Smew was off farnborough bank but little else till toft shallows where 2
Water Rail sulked under the broad walk. At least 6 Chiffchaff, Treecreeper, 4
Siskin and 2 Lesser Redpolls were in the area. Grays Barn had a Coal Tit. Other
birds of note included a Shelduck, Buzzard and Raven.
