Birds noted around the pool/woody area were 8 Mallard with another 12 being seen sitting in a field with Mute Swans, 8 Tufted Duck, 4 Teal, Chaffinch, Magpie, Pheasant, Carrion Crow, Black Headed Gull, Linnet, Stock Dove, Wren, 1 calling Grey Partridge, Goldfinch, Canada Geese, Starling, Great Spotted Woodpecker, Blue Tit, Treecreeper, Great Tit, Robin, Yellowhammer, Woodpigeon, Song Thrush, Cormorant, Pied Wagtail and Long-tailed Tit. Driving around the lanes and I could only add 163 Mute Swan, 1 Little Owl, 18 Fieldfare, a single Kestrel, 1 Grey Heron, about 500 Golden Plover, 2 Buzzard and a couple of Blackbirds.
