There were a few more birds around this afternoon, not a great deal more, but enough to keep me interested for a couple of hours. I visited the Tree Nursery, Maize stubbles in the Pub Field, as well as Migrant Alley and the Greenhouse Complex grounds.
To the south of my patch a large field was being Harrowed, which was attracting lots of Gulls, a few passed over my patch including HERRING GULL, BLACK HEADED GULL, and a possible immature Greater Black Backed Gull (see last photo) but I couldn't make my mind up on that one, a shame as they are a scarce species on my patch, plus it would have been a new one for the month.
These two LONG TAILED TITS were part of a larger flock that were feeding by the run off pool that is adjacent to the pub Field, with them were a few BLUE and GREAT TITS, as well as half a dozen CHAFFINCH
On the Pub Field Maize stubbles, 30-40 ROOKS were feeding, as well as 20 odd WOODPIGEON, approx. 18 MEADOW PIPITS were up and down, making it hard to see how many there actually were, then the inevitable SPARROWHAWK came over, but was seen off by the Rooks. Just before leaving for Migrant Alley this female PHEASANT flew up in front of me.
Over at Migrant Alley, it was a case of more Rooks, 20-30 more Meadow Pipit, 4 PIED WAGTAILS, 2 LINNETS and a mixed flock of around a dozen HOUSE MARTINS and SWALLOWS. The only other summer species seen was a CHIFFCHAFF in the Greenhouse Grounds
