At the back of the Industrial Estate near the Wickes depot, on Punch Bowl Lane, this afternoon...

A SKYLARK flew over.
2+ BUZZARDS were about.
2 BULLFINCHES were in the hedge bordering the depot, one was calling.
A Female SPARROWHAWK sat in a tree in the middle of a field, upsetting the increasing number of WOOD PIGEONS.
2 MALLARDS flew N.
One or two LESSER BLACK-BACKED GULLS were about.

At the reservoir on Cherry Tree Lane, close to Woodhall Farm...

A Male PHEASANT kept making me jump as it exploded from cover.
A SPARROWHAWK stealthily slipped between the trees along the lane.
An unsettled REDWING was moving about.
2 MALLARDS appeared to fly to the reservoir as it got dark.
