Cosmeston & Lavernock

At Cossie this morning a Snipe flushed from grass about 50m beyond the dragonfly pond - the first for me this autumn. Also 2 Chiffchaff, & Green 'Pecker of note.
Lavernock 4:15 p.m. - the Firecrest found by Phil Bristow this morning showed very well in the Field Maple tree by the road, in the garden of Church House, until about 4:30 when it poured with rain.
