In the almost wintery conditions, my three hour patch visit produced little of note, a SPARROWHAWK was seen working its way through the Wet Woods, and the male KESTREL hunted over the Greenhouse Grounds, a BUZZARD was seen soaring over the Ashes Lane Fields later in the visit. Two HERRING GULLS and a LESSER BLACK BACKED GULL were on the Ashes Lane Fields.
Hardly any song was heard in the Scrubby Woods, just one each of CHIFFCHAFF and BLACKCAP sang. There is still no Cuckoo calling here, could this be the first time in my 15 years of recording that April does not produce one ?
A very poor visit for April :-(
Nothing for the camera today, but I do have a few more shots of the female Sparrowhawk from yesterday.
