The early part of my walk, around the College Grounds, via Migrant Alley and the Greenhouse Complex, was a bog standard affair, the only highlight was that of my first CORMORANT (64) for the month that flew over the College Grounds.
The sighting of both BUZZARD and KESTREL over the Tree Nursery was a cheering sight as I walked to the Lakes and Scrubby Woods, but the sound of my first singing CUCKOO was even more cheery, I never tire of this sound, a pity it only last for 40-50 days of the year. I saw most of the regulars over at the Scrubby Woods, which included the COAL TIT, MISTLE THRUSH, and TREECREEPER that didn't get seen on yesterdays huge list, also I was amazed to hear the TAWNY OWL call from its roost for the fourth morning in a row.
Not much else to report really, two SWALLOWS went over, but apart from those, the sky was particularly quiet today.
Whilst in the Scrubby Woods, this Fox came walking past with its breakfast, like I wasn't even there!
|Fox with breakfast - shame I cut its tail off!|
|This CHIFFCHAFF was the only other photo I got today|
