The fields below Farborough Bank held Lapwing and at least 250 Fieldfare (in three fields) with a few Redwing all of which were very "flighty", probably due to a Buzzard overhead. At least seven Golden Plover were seen with the Lapwings when they took flight. As I approached Toft, two Mistle Thrush's flew ahead of me, but little else was seen.
The rest of my walk was uneventful and on arriving at the visitor centre, the book recorded Great Northern Diver (Bob H). I walked back out to Farborough Spit, scanning the water but, alas, no joy.
