Friday 08 November. I took Cookie up to Mill Hill. Several low flocks of Wood Pigeon flew NE totalling about 850 while 2 Redwing dropped in and as we left a Sparrowhawk flew over. There were fewer Robins and Song Thrushes than on recent visits.
Thursday 07 November. Megan and I took Cookie to Brooklands but it was quiet with 5 Teal, 3 Little Grebe and single Great Spotted Woodpecker and Chiffchaff seen and a Cetti's Warbler heard. Two Buzzards were sitting by the A27 cutting on our way home and 2 Sparrowhawks flew over our garden. Later, at low tide, I took Cookie to the Adur where we counted 33 Ringed Plover, a Dunlin and 5 Redshank.
