Meadow Pipit - 27 Summit, ~50 Marsh 
Carrion Crow - 5
Woodpigeon - 1
Wheatear - 1 Summit
Snipe - 2 Flushed Summit
Dunlin - 1 Flushed With Snipe
Skylark - 4 Summit, 13 Marsh

Kestrel - 1
Magpie - 1
Pied Wagtail - 1 (North)

Also of note was a Stoat that sat up not 2 meters from me near the marsh on the north side. 

On the way down from the hill I spotted a Barnacle Goose feeding in a flock of 10 Canada Geese across the road from the house. I assume it would be the same bird that has been at Fly Flatts grazing? Its not a bad garden tick!

Oops sorry I just realised the Osprey was Soil Hill, Hubberton. I didn't realise we had another Soil Hill. !!
