There were 2 buzzards in one of our poplars before I was up this morning so I had to get up and do the count so they could be included. Nothing else of note, the usual collection of tits, finches, blackbirds, robin and our resident moorhen.
No show from any woodpeckers or jays and no fieldfares or redwings so it didn't matter that I can't tell them apart
I'd love more wildlife friendly acres oneofseven. We're very hemmed in by spray happy farming. Things will improve though, a strip of native shrubs has just been planted on our longest boundary
Provided maintenance isn't given to the farmer things should get better
