|Alternative activities at the weekend!!|
I finally managed a short visit Tuesday morning when there where 4 CHIFFCHAFFS singing. I did a longer walk yesterday as well as making an appearance at the moth traps. The highlights at the traps were Shoulder striped, Red Chestnut, Early tooth striped and Yellow Horned as well as over 100 Small Quakers.
On the bird front there were at least 30 FIELDFARE and 7 REDWINGS hanging around as well 7 singing CHIFFCHAFF, the 4 COOTS are still present and a male REED BUNTING sung from the lake. Four JAYS were also by the lake.
This morning was similar with the addition of a RED LEGGED PARTRIDGE (75) calling from the freshly ploughed field.
