Broom GP and environs

2+ BEARDED TITS still, 2 JACK SNIPE, 1 Woodcock, 3 Snipe, and Martin Stevens reported a probable Knot briefly at 11:10, but no further sign.

A single PINK-FOOTED GOOSE is still with the Greylag flock in fields north of Southill, and there are plenty of TREE SPARROWS to be found in the village. 70+ Bramblings are also still around the sunflower fields (Steve Blain)
