The Osprey was again seen over Manor Farm fisheries mid-afternoon, before flying up to The Lodge with a fish around 15:45. Also four Ravens and two Kingfishers there too, per Mark Brandon.

A Firecrest and two Woodcocks were again in Kings Wood, Ampthill this afternoon, per Neil Wright.

A Short-eared Owl was at Reynolds Wood, next to Holcot Wood near Brogborough by Lol Carman, again mid-afternoon.
