A party of Bullfinch some half dozen in number were feeding on Ash Keys and also noted were four Buzzard, three Red Kite, four Hares, one Roebuck assorted small flocks of Fieldfare and another beater expressed his disappointment that I was unable to photograph the pair of Tawny Owls that he had good close views of due to my being on a different part of the marsh.
