The local Common Buzzards were very vocal as I checked Haskayne Cutting late this afternoon, but the persistent westerly breeze made it tough working through the bushes.
A feeding flock of 11 Long Tailed Tits dragged Blue and Great Tits, 2 Chiffchaff and a Goldcrest with them as they zipped through the hawthorn, birch and willows and autumnal Jays flopped about.
Thin seasonal fare.
Plex was busy with agricultural activity, while several groups of up to 20 Skylarks were moving through, and 100-150 Starlings probed the stubble, but I only saw eight Corn Buntings and two Yellowhammers.
Plenty of Stock Doves and Common Gulls with the Woodpigeons and BHGs.
It still felt like a busy afternoon, especially as the sky was littered with Pink Feet, with skein and after skein rising and falling over the mosses before the evening commute.
