I parked at the Pines Tea Shop walked along the road to the Pub then turned left on a path up to the hill. Summit was between the small copse and the trig point. I also visited the other area over 290 metres near the wood. Large flock of Chaffinch feeding on Beech Masts. I did get some views but it was cool and breezy with some sleety showers.isabelle28/01/2015
