I did a circuit of Migrant Alley, and walked the Pub Field, then did a circuit of the Ashes Lane Field, where I sat watched the sky from the shelter of hedgerow. Not an awful lot was recorded though, a few LINNETS were on the paddocks at Migrant Alley, and both CHIFFCHAFF and BLACKCAP sang from the Wooded Headland, the ROOKS, CARRION CROWS and JACKDAWS fed on the sheep pasture and a GREEN WOODPECKER clung to a fence post.
My skywatch produced a GREY HERON, a LESSER BLACK BACKED GULL, 2 HERRING GULLS and a YELLOWHAMMER, plus the sighting of only the second HOUSE MARTIN record this spring, when 2 flew low past me, the only other bird of note was a BUZZARD that got up out of the Wet Woods, before dropping back down again shortly after.
Hopefully a more extensive visit will can be made tomorrow. :-)
