I back tracked and walked towards the viewing platform as I thought i might get a better view of the area from higher up. As I walked towards the platform I spotted the bird again (10.05) on my left (Middle Moor) perched in a tree again. It sat there for around a minute and dropped to the floor, I suspect for food where I lost sight of it. Unfortunately despite waiting for around 30 minutes and scanning from the platform I didn`t see the bird again. 1 Eurasian Jay, 4 Goldcrest, 1 Willow Tit, 3 Sky Lark, 7 Long-tailed Tit, 333 Fieldfare (100 + 80 + 60 + 45 + 25 + 15 + 8), 19 Redwing, 2 Common Stonechat male and female Fison's road, 5 Meadow Pipit, 60 Goldfinch, 52 Lesser Redpoll, 3 Reed Bunting.
