Cromwell Bottom & Ringstone Edge

      Paid a visit to Cromwell Bottom today, which was a good
      move as there was plenty of bird life about and the members
      have done a good job with the viewing area-:

      8 Long Tailed Tit
      2 Nuthatch
      4 Siskin, which I was pleased to see
      4 Canada's
      5 Jay, 1 Kestrel, 1 Raven, 1 Grey Wagtail, 1 male Bullfinch
      8 Goosander flyover, 1 GSW
      4 Mallard, 2 Moorhen, 2 Wren
      lots of Blue, Coal & Great Tits and Chaffinch.

     Now on to Ringstone in the bright sunshine but no rarities,
     100+ Lapwing
     20+ Canada's with 1 Greylag with them and lots of Gulls & Crows
     10 Meadow Pipit in fields opposite, also 2 Robin and 2 Dunnock
     1 Little Owl on Bull field wall.

     Garden had 20+ Goldfinch, 2 Coal Tit, 2 Great tit, 6 Green & Chafffinch
     4 Collared Dove, 10+ Starling and a 20+ Jackdaw flyover.

                            Sorry if there's too many pic's, won't do it again.
