Claremount Hill & Ringby Lane

         Claremount hill and garden yesterday was busy with 30+
         Goldfinch and 20+ Starling, 6 Greenfinch, 2 Chaffinch,
         a raptor flyover, Crows, Jackdaws and Magpies.

         Woke up this morning to dense fog so my Fly Flats visit was
         abandoned so stayed in for a sport watching day until late
         afternoon and had a stroll up Ringby Lane which I've never
         known it as quiet in the first half hour, there were just the odd Crow.
         It busied up a bit later with flights of 50+ Goldfinch and then 50+
         Meadow Pipit and 10 LBB Gulls and a first for me up there a
         Grey Wagtail which was a surprise and 6 Rabbits.
         Garden today had-:

         10+ Goldfinch
         8 Greenfinch
         2 Coal Tit
         2 Chaffinch
         2 Robin
         4 Collared Dove
         1 Squirrel.
