New Cut Lane

I had a quick look down New Cut Lane yesterday which was a great place for brambling a few autumns ago. The fields around there don't look very good for finches this year and I didn't see a single finch yesterday although it was getting quite late in the day.

In one of the fields there was a distant buzzard eating something, and one of two raven waiting in the wings for it to finish.

There was also 20 fieldfare and a single redwing in one of the trees near to New Cut Farm...
