Lovely day for almost seeing some stuff

A lot moving overhead this morning, mainly Skylarks, Meadow Pipits, Chaffinches and Pied Wagtails.

In the village, Coal Tit, Grey Wagtail, Nuthatch and a single House Martin.

Up at the Plantation, usual suspects in the woodland (both woodpeckers, Jay, Treecreper), and on the escarpment/game cover just to the east, singing Chiffchaff and several calling birds, some vocal RL Patridges, and a flock of 15 Linnets.

Three Common Buzzards around the place, and a male Kestrel hunting mippits adjacent to the Coach Road.

Dropping back into the village, a Yellowhammer overhead (fairly unusual here), a probable Brambling (called once) and a possible Firecrest at Place Farm, near the right-angle turn (again, called briefly).

At least four species of gull around the village, with LBB, Common and prob GBB seen in addition to the usual BH and Herrings.

Also a big swarm of Starlings seen distantly, over the plough between Firle and Littledene – several hundred at least.
