Evening all... It was calm, still and bright today and that got people out looking for Firecrests as hearing their high pitched calls and catching movement was easier!
One Firecrest was in the gorse at near the Serin Mound, another was around the Centre gardens and the other two were in the ivy between the Cordite entrances. - Good luck!
