I managed to get onto the patch at a reasonable time this morning, so I decided to walk the fields along Stanklyn Lane from the 'beet field' to Summerfield. This was quite a productive walk as I was able to relocate some of Corn Bunting population. In total I recorded a flock of 11 Corn Buntings. Also with them were 2 Yellowhammer.
At one point 37 Skylark went up from the large grassy field at Summerfield and 82 Fieldfare, 1 Pied Wagtail and a Meadow Pipit flew over. Also noted during this walk were 3 Jays, 4 Linnet, 6 Greenfinch and 9 Blackbirds.
From Stanklyn Lane I decided to pop and spend some time on Heath Lane. Here I had 48 Skylarks fly over the large cereal field heading South. Also recorded in this field were c.40 Linnet. 2 Meadow Pipits and a Pied Wagtail flew over. At the model aircraft field there was a Yellowhammer perched on the hedgerow. In the trees next to the Islamic school playing fields was a Goldcrest and a Jay. A Kestrel was also noted.
Not much in the way of photos today but I did take a shot of some fungi that was along Stanklyn Lane. If there are any fungi experts out there who can help id them for me, please do!
