A couple of BLACK HEADED GULLS went over to join 22 that were quartering the only field that has been sown so far. There was just one REDPOLL near the barn and 5 MAGPIES were in the field below the Granary. A BULLFINCH called from the hedge below the veg garden and a COMMON BUZZARD drifted over as I tried to locate the Bullfinch.
I heard a couple of YELLOWHAMMERS and REED BUNTING as wandered the fields. The pond is now finished and has two big 'puddles' in it, which is an encouraging start, I didn't take any photos of the finished article as I only had the long lens with me, hopefully I'll take some tomorrow. I added MEADOW PIPIT, SKYLARK, GREEN WOODPECKER, GOLDFINCH and HERRING GULL before heading home.
