A few hours at the moor today started well with a Staines Moor tick in the form of a male House Sparrow briefly just inside the Staines Moor boundary along Moor Lane by the lake. Other than that things were very quiet on Staines Moor with 1 Jack Snipe, 2+ Water Pipit (Colne), 12 Stonechat (7m, 5f), 2 Common Buzzard, 1-2 Red Kite (with another over Wraysbury Reservoir), 2 Kestrel, 1m Reed Bunting (singing in NW corner), 7+ Skylark (some singing), c5 Meadow Pipit, 1 Coot (Colne), 1 Little Grebe (Colne), 2 Goldcrest (old railway) and quite a few Song Thrush (including several singing).

Weather: Sunny (1 okta in morning) becoming cloudy early afternoon (7 oktas), light but cold SW wind.
