Canons Farm and Banstead Woods

I was back up to Surrey for the third time this week to lead the CFBWBG's Autumn Migration Tour. It was quieter than we might have hoped, but a showy Whinchat at Reads Bottom and an overhead push of House Martins and the odd Swallow saved the day and made it an enjoyable outing for the 14 participants. A couple of Meadow Pipits flew over the farm and in Banstead Woods we enjoyed the sounds of Nuthatches, Coal Tits, Goldcrests, Treecreepers and Bullfinch but none played ball and showed for the crowd!
