After yesterday afternoons up-beat patch visit, this afternoons was back down to earth again!
A chainsaw crew were in the Wet woods, the Gas Canons nearby were back with a bang, and there was disturbance at the lake area, I should have stayed at home! I did get a look around the Tree Nursery, where I saw 3 REDWING, 4 SONGTHRUSH, a GREEN WOODPECKER, a very vocal male PHEASANT and the sighting of the day - 14 LINNETS (58) the first this month :-)
A brief look over the sheep pasture was made, and the 300+ birds I saw there were made up of roughly the same as yesterday, that is, 150 FIELDFARE, 100 Starling, 70 ROOKS, and 3 MISTLE THRUSH, but no Redwing were with them. One of the KESTREL pair was on the Greenhouse roof, and a SPARROWHAWK flew high over. On the walk home, well before sunset again, a pair of BULLFINCH were seen along Ashes Lane.
Lets hope tomorrow is up beat again, at least the weather looks to be brightening up, so I may get a few garden photo's if there's time, that is if I can remember how to operate the camera!! :-)
