I was unable to get around the patch until mid-afternoon today due to other commitments and by this time of day things were painfully quite.
I started my visit at Stanklyn where a Kestrel was busy working the paddocks and the gallops. Also of note were flyover singles of Skylark, Meadow Pipit and Pied Wagtail.
Heath Lane was completely dead but for a few Carrion Crow and Woodpigeon, so I headed over to Witch Lane.
At Witch Lane a flock of 40+ Linnet were Wheeling around over the plough and a Common Buzzard was also noted.
My final stop today was Butts Lane where I walked my usual circuit. All that the brassica/stubble field provided me with today was 1 Skylark and a Linnet. Eastfields Farm was a little better with 2 Common Buzzard, 2 Jays, a Green Woodpecker, a Mistle Thrush, 2 Robins and 6 Long-tailed Tits recorded.
A handful of invertebrates were also noted today with 2 Red Admiral, 1 Comma, 1 Small White and a Migrant Hawker dragonfly on the wing.
