I had a walk around the fields and paddocks of Migrant Alley, then checked the Greenhouse Copse and the Greenhouse Grounds before the heavy rain set in. There was a small flock of 10 or so LINNETS on one of the paddocks, plus an adult and immature LESSER BLACK BACKED GULL were on the sheep pasture, the adjacent field had 3 each of CANADA and GREYLAG GEESE, but a bit later I watched a mixed flock of these geese fly over, 50+ of them flew in an Autumnal like manner.
CHIFFCHAFF and BLACKCAP were heard to sing from the Greenhouse Copse, as did a TREECREEPER, the LITTLE OWL flew past me and into the copse, coming from the direction of the Greenhouse Grounds, where the male KESTREL was hunting again and the 2 -3 WHITETHROATS were heard singing/calling.
A short skywatch produced a BUZZARD, a couple of SWIFTS, a lone HOUSE MARTIN, plus a GREY HERON, but that was my lot for the morning.
Good job I saved some images of the dragonflies from yesterdays visit...................
My first Four Spotted Chaser of the year, :-)
Also my first Broad Bodied Chaser of the year, I had more time with this species, so got a few more images.
