134 birds of 27 species

Three species of raptor were seen flying over Railway Covert where the regular mixed flock of feeding birds included a siskin.

Also of note was a lone female stonechat, perched on the same area of electric fence for the third month in a row.

Birds can be watched at New Decoy using the Dragonfly Trail there, parking at the Great Fen Information Point.
