  At least one pair of Crossbills gave me the run-around this morning, flying noisily but unseen overhead.  I finally caught up with them, got three separate views and was able to digi-scope the female:

   Other birds seen in the relatively small area I covered included a pair of Stonechat and several Bullfinches. I heard Lesser Redpolls and also Willow Tits from two separate locations.
