Black Park - 29 January 2012

Another go in the heathland area for Finches was a little disappointing as very few came into the area and settled, and even the number of Redpoll and Siskin flying over where not that high. A small flock of around 20 Crossbill flew over and at least one Woodcock was flushed.  On our way out we checked out an area of Beech and found around 100 birds feeding mostly on the floor, predominately Great Tits and Chaffinches. Something to try on another day.
