Bradley and EGP today

Went over to see if the Yellowhammers were about over at Bradley. As I arrived I saw a male in one of the mature trees and later I saw a male and female fly over. The male returned and landed just above me -
It was singing intermittently and flew off into the scrub after about 30 seconds or so.

Also present were a pair of Bullfinch, a Sparrowhawk and a small flock of finches including Goldfinch and Lesser Redpoll.

Would I have time for a quick look at EGP on the way home and risk being late for the dreaded shopping trip? Well, there's always time isn't there.

EGP - Ski Lake
6 Goldeneye (3 pairs)
3 Cormorant
c. 50 BH Gull
3 Common Gull
Great Crested Grebe

Plenty of Tits about all over the place including 5 Long-tailed; just 3 Goosander (2m 1f) on the river by Avocet; a Little Grebe calling and a Coot were on the lagoon, and another single Coot was on the fishing lake.
