c20 Lapwings high over >W
2 Nuthatch
2+ Grey Heron

A few finch sp.. mainly Chaffs and Goldfinch but no Brambling found
And in the crags 300+ Woodpigeons

I went up in the morning after the Bramblings but no luck. The weather was sunny and dry, there was precious little about. Nuthatch very vocal and a GSW drumming.
