I watched from the granary across the valley for half an hour and was rewarded with WOODPIGEONS! and not lots of them, also a KESTREL hunted near the stream the first one this week. With not much happening I tried the hedges again, yesterdays Chiffchaffs had all but disappeared and were replaced by 9 or 10 WHITETHROATS. There was one bird 'tacking' in the hedgerow which wouldn't show itself, it was probably aware I had to move on to get to work on time! Tomorrow is another day, hopefully with a bit more going on, at least this morning I did put a coat on and was ready for the quick shower that got me :-)
This evening I grabbed 10 minutes looking across the valley and had 1 BUZZARD and 5 SWIFTS.
