COMMON SHELDUCK still at Broom

A late morning bike ride around the area produced a few bits and pieces.

Southill village - Just 1 Tree Sparrow opposite the shop with 5-6 House Sparrows. I didn't see the main flock.
Lesser Redpoll- c20 down School Lane in the arboretum Birches.
Also 2 Buzzards and a Red Kite, the latter perches in a tree to the east of Southill Lake.

Linnet- c200 in Birches on the southern edge of Gypsy Lane West Pit.
COMMON SHELDUCK once again on Peacock's Lake.
