A nice spring day but there was little on offer for Ed Stubbs on his visit to the patch. However, it was very interesting strolling around and chatting Surrey patching with a fellow dry site birder. A male Stonechat knocking around Horse Pasture was rather unexpected and there are no later spring records going back to at least 2010. Otherwise, a couple of Little Owls were on view and a Grey Heron flew over, as did a Mallard when I returned later in the day. Five Swallows and two Whitethroats were also of note.
