New Birder's Hut

 We've been campaigning for years to Viridor to dip into their £5.2 billion reserves and develop some visitor facilities at the farmlands for the 1.4 million people that live in the immediate vicinity. Our call has finally been answered with this new birdwatchers hut. 
 A bit of movement today. Double figures of Cormorant, a trickle of Mipits, 3 Yellow Wagtails, 2 Skylark and 3 Swallow. 
A distant first-winter gull looked good for a first-winter Yellow-legged

How many did you squeeze into the hut Peter!
Had a Hawfinch at Canon's Farm around lunchtime with another young birder Calum from Herts. Other than that today was quite quiet.

There was room for more!
Nice find on the Hawfinch.
