A short post as it involves the hallowed ground that is the Brecks.
I went to four different locations and saw;
4 different male Bighawk
3 Bigfinch (1 male and 2 female)
4 Red Kite
20+ Buzzard (10 in one scan at a site)
as well as other usuals such as Bramblings, Redpolls, Siskins
(but no Crossbills, Little woodpeckers or Willow Tits)
Not bad for a chilly, windy, cloudy day and very enjoyable after a years absence from the area.
