Patching was rewarding, with two Siberian Chiffchaffs performing superbly with five nominate Chiffchaffs. The pond was the busiest I've ever seen it, with a Great Crested Grebe, a drake Mallard, two Coots and a Moorhen! A Firecrest, a singing Treecreeper, a Yellowhammer and two Bullfinches were among the other species noted.
