Had a trip up to Taylor Lane today to see if the Cuckoo were still there
and they were, well 2 of them were but weather very poor for photography,
I met Denise and another birder up there and she'd just seen 3 Whinchat
and 2 Wheatear up Old Guy Rd, I ventured up there after Taylor Lane
but had no joy and also went on Roper lane on the look out for Redstart
but again no joy though BS, GH and DS had more luck and seen it, I did
manage to see 3 Kes and 10 Common Gull on Roper lane.
Lots of Swallows, Linnets, Goldfinch, Siskin and Greenfinch up Taylor lane
and the 2 Cuckoo.
Garden had a first with 2 Coal Tits visiting with the regular Goldfinch also
2 Great Tits, 4 Blue Tits and 4 Greenfinch and a Raven flyover.
