Had a wander about today with it being my day off, first
stop was Soil Hill on a dull but very calm day, not much
happening today though, 4 Curlew making a lot of noise
4 Lapwing bobbing about, 7 Linnets 2 Red Grouse flushed,
lots of Pipits & Skylarks and a couple of Pheasant.
Then up to Ogden Water but was too busy so decided to
give it a miss but a jay flew in front of me and spotted a
Little Owl on my travels, next I nipped up to Ovenden Moor
and the first bird I spotted was a Wheatear and then another
but nothing but Meadow Pipits and Curlews after that and a
couple of Pheasant, was an enjoyable morning shame about
the poor light.
Surprised that no raptors were to be seen apart from the owl,
garden had Goldfinch, Greenfinch and Chaffinch, 2 Collared
Dove and a couple of Jackdaws.
