The highlight of today's visit was 8 Corn Buntings in the bet field along Stanklyn Lane. Corn Buntings I here you cry , they aren't ten a penny. But they are a breeding bird on my patch and are present all year round. Also present at the beet field were 69 Starlings, 7 Dunnocks, 2 Meadow Pipits, 6 Skylarks, 1 Wren and a ♀ Kestrel.
Stanklyn Lane paddocks contained a Pied Wagtail, a Common Buzzard and a Green Woodpecker. A single Skylark was up singing over the field opposite.
A ♂ Kestrel was on the wires over Heath Lane paddocks and 4 Skylarks flew over heading NW.
Witch Lane was devoid of bird life other than a single Grey Heron sat in one of the fields.
