Slindon Park and Goring Gap

Slindon Park made for a lovely walk this morning, with no fewer than nine Firecrests, a Siskin, a redpoll, seven Great Spotted Woodpeckers, three Green Woodpeckers, a Kestrel, two Marsh Tits, eight Coal Tits, three Blackcaps, six Chiffchaffs, four Goldcrests, five Nuthatches, two Treecreepers, a Mistle Thrush, nine Song Thrush, six Meadow Pipits and a Bullfinch, among 43 species logged.

A brief mid-afternoon watch at Goring Gap with special guest Ed produced two Common Scoters, four Gannets, four westbound Black-headed Gulls and a Great Crested Grebe. Chiffchaff and Skylark were in song and a Grey Seal was just offshore.
