Not the most exciting. Every October visit so far has produced a Jay, but so far no luck with photographing, either because of distance, or because it only appeared for a moment before disappearing again (no idea how many Jays of course). The area most visited is the east end of compartment 7A (old reservoir bed), where presumably the future's oak woodland is being planted. Lone Black-tailed Godwit is still happily feeding around the pond edge. Nothing else of note, I think, although Comp 4B looks odd since its shave.
The small group of trees at the cottage end of 4B has >40 silver birch, with some ash, rowan and hawthorn to the cottage end. One of the rowans has a protective sleeve still on it.
