Chat with Alan on the way down the zigzag hoping that tarrying may produce a perched-up Hawfinch - but no luck. At Westmead slightly better views of the Temminck's today in company of a single Dunlin but still far too far for a picture. Two Peregrines, one coming within inches of snatching a Dunlin, male Marsh Harrier, one Red Kite, four Buzzards and three Kestrels plus four Egyptian Geese and a few flushed Snipe. On the right hand tree a showy Treecreeper and finally a smart male Reed Bunting on the path heading back.
All of the above bookended by a male Siskin on arrival and a singing Woodlark on departure,
