There air felt very cool this morning (and not in a The Fonz way), it really did feel positively autumnal.
At Stanklyn Lane there were small signs of movement with a both a Hobby and a Swallow over heading SW. Also 2 Skylarks flew over heading West and 4 Mistle Thrushes heading WNW. A Chiffchaff was in song along the lane, a Jay was present in the paddock and 3 Common Buzzards were up soaring.
At Heath Lane paddock there was a Common Buzzard on the fence posts and a ♀ Kestrel hovering over the adjacent field. A flock of 15 Linnets flew over heading East and 7 Swallows were also present.
At Witch Lane the Lapwing numbers had increased to 76 Lapwing. I have taken some rather poor footage panning across to give an idea of the size of the flock (windy conditions are not very conducive to digi-scoped videos). Also noted at this location were 1 Kestrel, 2 Stock Doves and a charm of 8 Goldfinch. A single Swallow flew through heading South.
My final stop was Back Lane where I recorded my only butterfly of the day, a single Red Admiral that was feeding on the Ivy flowers. 1 Mistle Thrush and 2 Linnets were on the telegraph wires.
