|Early sunshine warming the Scrubby Woods|
I recorded a good tally of 48 species while out, this was made up to 50 when two species not seen on my walk, NUTHATCH and LESSER REDPOLL were seen at my garden feeders during my snack break at home :-) I took these images of it later in the afternoon, the light was just a bit strong to show it's lovely rosey breast properly, but it's a shot I was after, so its a keeper :-) I took a few more photo's of the garden birds which i'll post tomorrow, as the weather looks to be returning to wet and windy!

|Common Buzzard, seen later in the walk over the Ashes Lane Field|
Out on the Fields I found a LITTLE OWL in the old shack thats in the Ashes Lane Field, the first sighting of one there for ten days, a couple of SKYLARK were also up singing. Not much but ROOKS, JACKDAWS and WOODPIGEONS were out on the paddocks and pasture of Migrant Alley, but in the adjacent Greenhouse Grounds a couple of YELLOWHAMMER were present, as well as 3 LINNETS, 2 PIED WAGTAILS and 8 MEADOW PIPITS a nice little collection for here! The only flyovers that were of any note during my sky watch, were a SPARROWHAWK and the female KESTREL.
