two young Buzzards attracted out attention, their agitation caused by a passing Peregrine. On the water were 13 Greylags and 21 Canada Geese and the pair of Great Crested Grebes, that had attempted to bred appeared to be without any off-spring. Further along the valley, towards Dob Park, a flock of 25 Siskin flew from trees, a Blackcap was in song and so were four Chiffchaffs.

Spotted Flycatcher was seen carrying food, two adult Grey Wagtails accompanied a juvenile on the river and four Siskin flew from the wood where three Treecreepers were seen. Three Common Gulls were later seen flying up the valley.
