Further up the way at Barrs Lane I heard the flight call of, and managed to see, a single Tree Pipit that flew over heading South East. This is the first patch record of this bird so I was dead chuffed. In all honestly there are probably a number go over on Autumn passage ... I really should get out to the patch at dawn to do a bit of vis-mig through the season. The only other birds of note in this area was a single
♂Kestrel perched on a hay bale and a Corn Bunting in the brassica field.
At Stanklyn Lane paddocks there were 17 Pied Wagtails and 9 Swallows present.
A ♀ Kestrel, 2 Common Buzzards and c.60 Greenfinch were present along Witch Lane.
I didn't manage to get any bird pics today so here is a photo I took of some lichen & ivy on a dead tree along Butts Lane...
