Took a trip up to Fly Flatts today for an hour but was
surprisingly very quiet, stopped at Nolstar first and saw
nothing on the ground and just a flock of Goldfinch overhead,
then up to the radio masts where there were just Starlings.
I was driving up to the lake when I saw some wings fluttering
so stopped and had a look and among the ruins up there were
6 Whinchat & Stonechat all looked like juveniles, 8 Canada's were on the
water with others in the grass, 2 Curlews flew over and more
could be heard later and also 2 Raven flew over Cronking and
2 Little Owl were seen up Withens which cheered an old couple
up when I showed them where they were and also cheered me
up too, they're a cracking little bird.
Goldfinch, Chaffinch, Blue Tits, Wood Pigeon, Collared Dove,
Wren and unusually 2 House Sparrow were in the garden and
last night the local Tawny Owl was on the hunt and doing
plenty of screeching.
