1 Raven over around 17.30ish, plus a significant sounding gathering of Goldfinches in the trees around the pond. There were 30+ in one tree alone and it sounded like many more in other trees in the area.

once saw one a few years ago up a horschesnut tree in haigh hall.it sticks in my mind because a green woodpecker was on the same branch.bet no one else has ever had these two species in their bins at the same time.what im getting at jimmy is mandarins nest in holes in trees so haigh hall is a possibility.and this tree was very near the boathouse where mandarins are often seen on the canal.
