Had a walk up Ringby Lane this evening in the sun but still
very windy at top of the slope were a flock of Linnet & Twite
in the farm yard and on the big tree that's there.
Meadow Pipits kept popping up now and again and 3 what
could of been Herring Gulls, 2 Partridge flushed from a scrape,
hundreds of Crows & Jackdaws, 1 Kestrel hovering about, then
dog walkers and joggers turned up so thought I'd have a drive
over to Soil Hill.
Plenty of Pipits & Skylarks knocking about and very noisy,
2 Curlew in the old farmhouse field, 4 Lapwings got swooped
by one of them, so must be careful where I'm treading, 2 Canada's
down by the pond and 3 Pheasant close by it, 1 Kestrel flying about
and one unidentified thought it was a pipit at first but a bit smaller
and a really deep dark brown ( Stonechat ?),my first House Martin
