Weald Park August 21st

I visited late afternoon, after hearing of good numbers of the rarer migrants located around Bluebell Pond, this is just beyond the entrance car park.On arrival could not find any birds in the area, there was also 2 other chaps looking as well. They eventually found the very large roving flock beyond the pond with many birds in the Oaks in the cattle grazing area.
Could not find the 5 reported Redstarts but did locate most of the other species, thanks to the other 2 birders for the shout.Ended up with the following
Spotted Flycatcher - 12 to 15 highly active birds
Pied Flycatcher - 2 birds seen, female/juvenile types, one with a much stronger wing bar
Wood Warbler - 1 bird seen ( 2 reported )
Willow Warbler - 2
Blackcap- 1
Goldcrest - 2 in Belvedere
Nuthatch - 2
Treecreeper - 2
Coal Tit - 1
Many Blue and Great Tits and also large numbers of Migrant Hawkers.
