Coach road, Hove Edge and Jay House Lane

Coach Road - foggy on the tops so I went where there was a chance of seeing something !
3 Great Spotted Woodpeckers - with 2 males drumming and a Carrion Crow mimicking the drumming !! that was odd.
Not a lot else there other than Blue, Great, Coal and L T Tits and 1 Goldcrest, 10 Goldfinch, 4 Redwings and a Jay.

Thornhills Beck Lane - Green Sandpiper still showing well till it took off at 11:15 heading towards some nearby fields where I lost it.

55 Golden Plover came in high from the east and landed in nearby fields but just out  of sight
At least 25 Tree Sparrows
1 Little Owl
6 Stock Doves
100+ B H Gulls and 40+ Common Gulls and an adult L B B Gull flyover >NW
