Dan Heywood’s Bird Walk Jan 26th

16+ people joined Dan for a 2 hour walk around. A pair of bull finches were busy stripping buds at Edenbreck , over a hundred linnets swooped around us, dropping down to feed in the arable, Pink Foot flew over and finally snipe whipped past as Dan flushed them from around Cromwell’s Pond. In all 32 species were seen or heard.
