Two more Canons ticks

I found a stunning male Whinchat today at Canons Farm at the spot that is fast becoming the best birding point on the whole site. While I was watching it the tits started alarm calling and the chat tilted its head skywards, I looked up to find my first Canons Farm Hobby. It circled a little then flew NE towards Banstead Woods. 2 ticks in one after-school trip, not bad. At 80, I'm now only 3 behind the top Canon man Steve Gale.
