As I left the car park I heard a whirring of wings and just caught sight of a medium size bird disappearing over the roof of the coffee shop, unfortunately I couldn't be sure what it was, my guess would be Woodcock or Partridge but the sighting was all to breif. The sheep were up and about and it was interesting to watch Pied Wagtails and Starlings searching the the place the sheep must have slept as the grass was green with no frost.
A small group of 12 Black-Headed Gulls dropped in with 1 Common Gull but didn't stay long, at least 3 Treecreepers were singing today and instead of the more usual Marsh Tit, 2 Coal Tits called, just for a change! Out in the fields it was again Skylark, Yellowhammer and a few Fieldfares that were most evident, a Grey Heron again flew over and a Great Spotted Woodpecker wouldn't come round to the side of the tree that I could photograph! I spoke to my Dad later who walked round after me and he had seen 4 Buzzards together quite low, giving as good views as he'd ever had.
