18 Nov - A sunny afternoon at Shorncote, and fairly productive - 4 Snipe and 2 Green Sandpipers, also Wigeon and Snipe (2), a drake Shoveler, 3 Redpolls with Linnets, Goldfinches, Chaffinches and a Reed Bunting. 2 Water Rails called from the reeds. Over 150 Fieldfares were present but flighty, with a few Redwings. 2 Grey Wagtails (3) were seen. Photos JM.
