60 Lapwing were again present in the ploughed field along the A450 and a juvenile Common Whitethroat was seen in the hedgerow opposite the model aircraft field at Heath Lane (BK)
A Jay was seen burying acorns at the back of Stanklyn Lane Paddocks and 2 Green Woodpeckers were also present nearby. 2 Swallows flew over heading SE.
The highlight of today's visit though was seeing a Mole run from its hole up against a gate post along Stanklyn Lane to another nearby. Its unusual but not unheard of to see one in the daytime and I guess this individual had found he couldn't tunnel through the gate post/foundation and legged it to an earlier hole.
