Canons Farm and Banstead Woods, 26th November 2016

An early start at Canons Farm was greeted with more fog than birds. I teamed up with Darragh C and once more we found that the most interest was in Banstead Woods; six Siskins was as unusual as things got but it was a pleasure, as always, to see a good number and variety of common woodland birds (though no large mixed flocks seem to have formed yet). My plan was to head off to Folkestone for the Forster's Tern once I got back to the car but once I'd sorted myself out it looked as though I'd have half an hour of light to work with, at best, so perhaps I'll go tomorrow.
