I started today's rounds on Stanklyn Lane where on arrival 2 Corn Buntings and a Yellowhammer were singing. 4 Skylarks and 2 Green Woodpeckers were seen feeding in the paddocks. The beet field held c.100 Linnets.
Next up was Heath Lane. 3 Fieldfare were in the lower paddock and a Red-legged Partridge was in the model aircraft field. 2 Skylarks were on the plough here and 2 Yellowhammers were on the hedgerow. Also seen in the Heath Lane area were a ♀ Kestrel & a Common Buzzard.
The final area that I walked today was Butts Lane. 20 Skylarks were feeding in the stubble at the triangle. 7 Meadow Pipits dropped into the adjacent stubble field. 5 Corn Buntings, 8 Yellowhammers and a Reed Bunting were also present. Whilst on Butts Lane I also saw my first Honey Bee of the year.
