Lunch time at the moor

A quick visit to Staines Moor in my lunch break revealed not an awful lot in calm sunny conditions: 1 Common Buzzard low W mobbed by Carrion Crows, 3 Linnet N, just 1 Goldfinch over S were the only birds moving overhead. 1m & 1f Stonechat were still present at the north end, and 3 Fieldfare, 12 Redwing, 1+ Song Thrush, 4 Blackbird, 3 Reed Bunting, 9 Meadow Pipit and c80 Starling were noted. Still no Water Pipits, and despite the widespread flooding, no wildfowl either. Stanwell Moor added 1 Goldcrest, 1 Kestrel, a few more Redwing and 1m Pheasant.

Spread a 12.75kg sack of Gardman No Mess Mixed Seed at the north end. At £20 a go this better bring in more than just Woodpigeons!
