New Forest/Farmoor Reservoir (11/05/2014)

Started at Acres Down where I found a singing Wood Warbler not far from the car park, half a dozen Crossbills flying around, a singing Woodlark and a possible Tree Pipit.

I tried other places for Tree Pipit but no luck in a howling gale.

I turned up at Beaulieu Road Station at 8.45am to lead a NE Hants trip.  I waited until 9.45am, seeing male Siskin and male Redstart but nobody turned up.  I then drove to Farmoor Reservoir where once again I failed with the Spotted Sandpiper.  There was a flock of about 20 Dunlin, 3 Common Sandpipers and a possible Hobby.
