Canons Farm, Banstead Woods and Holmwood

A quick visit back home gave me an excuse to visit the old patch. It was much quieter than I hoped for but a Yellow Wagtail over Canons Farmhouse was something. Other bits at the farm included three Lesser Black-backed Gulls, three migrant Chiffchaffs, three Swallows, a Whitethroat, four Yellowhammers and a Sparrowhawk. Teaming up with Ian Magness to check a portion of Banstead Woods produced a further three Chiffchaffs, six Nuthatches, four Treecreepers and seven Coal Tits.

Driving back to Worthing in the evening - but in good daylight - a Tawny Owl gave a nice view as it cross the A24 near Holmwood.
