On the bird front it's been more about a little build up in numbers this week, this morning probably just had the best figures for most birds with 40+ SKYLARK, 60 LINNET and 40+ MEADOW PIPITS.
This morning also saw 300+ HOUSE MARTINS and 50 or so SWALLOWS, after relatively few in the warm spell at the beginning of the week, when just a handful of House Martins were seen. Yesterday though did top the YELLOWHAMMER poll with at least 47 birds present. Other bits and pieces in the last two days include another GREY WAGTAIL this morning, no Blackcaps but still 2 or 3 CHIFFCHAFF, the largest SISKIN flock numbered 34, add to that a KESTREL, SPARROWHAWK and 2 GREY HERONS and that probably sums up the best bits. Pictures have been hard to come by with the light being so poor before 8am when I head off to work, I did try :-)
