TMR track opposite side to entrance gate: 1 Green Woodpecker, 3 Grey Wagtail, 8 Red-legged Partridge, Swallows and few LBBG. On the hillside appeared to be an HC indulging in vismig.

Not much on the stretch to Fly Flatts where on arrival we bumped into RP, with a Kestrel & Buzzard circling overhead. Things livened up a bit here although there was nothing on the water, however we did espy: 1 each Wheatear & Whinchat, 3 Stonechat and a few Canada. The Withens coughed up a bunch of Starling, c50 Meadow Pipit & 4/5 Linnet.
Halfway down the track back to Ogden Res were 3 more Stonechat. A squadron of gulls and a Cormorant were on the water with a pr of drake Tufted Duck preening appropriately on the shore by ducky corner.
DW may have glimpsed a Buzzard briefly over the back of Soil Hill but we definitely stopped for a natter with JL on the top.
Thanks to DM for the lift.
