I checked the adjacent Pub Field, in the hope of finding a Lapwing on the harrowed stubbles, but again I was not successful, only the ROOKS and Feral Pigeons fed here. Moving on to the paddocks and sheep pasture of Migrant Alley, I found what was to be expected really, half a dozen LINNETS, the same number of GOLDFINCH, more Rooks, 40-50 JACKDAWS and a scattering of WOODPIGEON. The power lines above had at least 250 STARLINGS lined across them, some of which dropped down into the sheep pasture to feed.
Another half hours sky watch on my seat only produced a couple of flyover SISKIN of note, but not a single Swallow or House Martin today, I may well have seen my last of these until next spring.
The sun was just disappearing behind the garden wall when I got home, but I just had time enough for some very dark photo's of some of the regular birds, not much is venturing in at the moment as the Sparrowhawks have got a grip on proceedings!
