An early evening walk from Coppice Pond clockwise past Lady Blantyre's Rock, past the Heather Park and through Racecourse Plantation produced the following;

Coppice Pond
The Mute Swan that has remained all summer still has yet to attract a mate. When he does it'll be interesting to see how the breeding Canada Geese react.

Lady Blantyre's Rock area
Several Siskins were heard flying over.

Racecourse Plantation
Even more Siskins were heard overhead, these I presume are migrants from the north.

Kettlewell Reservoir area
A Kestrel was seen sat on the wires.

Some more good observations by a fellow birder;

A Lesser Spotted Woodpecker and three Crossbills were seen bathing in the dis-used Kettlewell Reservoir.
