The sun soon started appearing and after 30 minutes the fog suddenly lifted. I pursued a few Goldcrests unsuccessfully but finally reached the ton with a photo of a Treecreeper.
We headed down the hill across bright sunlit fields, noting about 50 Yellowhammers and 20 Reed Buntings behind the pool. The flashes were covered in birds, mostly Lapwings. We estimated 250 Lapwings plus 17 Black-headed Gulls, 36 Teal, 80 Mallard, 14 Snipe and two Green Sandpipers. Behind the furthest flash sat a single Kingfisher.
