|A different view|
I was walking by 5.45 this morning, the SPOTTED FLYCATCHERS were busy and the CUCKOO was singing, a GREY WAGTAIL flew over, which was only about the third sighting this year, a bird that nested on the estate, until a couple of years ago. 6 STOCK DOVES flew over the wood and the first COLLARED DOVE of the month was near the Granary. The only gull species again was HERRING GULL today, I've had reports recently of Med. Gulls from Marden and St.Michaels, so being somewhere in between I'm hoping to add them to the year list soon :-)
|I hope this Spot Fly doesn't get to used to sitting on cats!!|
|Sorry! Another Robin in the early light|
A GOLDCREST was singing near the lake, COAL TIT and MARSH TIT were added in the wood. In the fields the REED BUNTING was singing again and a second (or possibly the same) GREY WAGTAIL flew over, as this disappeared, I heard CROSSBILLS and a flock of 15 headed south west, the best flock this year, later I managed to find a distant SWIFT, the first one this month.
