The discovery of a Yellow Browed Warbler down at Crosby this morning meant Range Lane and Cabin Hill were worth a look, but anticipation was soon replaced with reality.
A few hundred Pink Feet in the Marsh Farm stubble, with Stock Doves and up to 40 Skylarks, although the latter were impossible to really work through because of the distance involved.
The set-aside field’s rank vegetation held a few Meadow Pipits, Reed Bunting, Goldfinch and four Stonechats, with Robins here and there.
Two Jays and a Greater ‘Pecker went through, while Range Lane and Cabin Hill held a couple of Goldcrests, Song Thrush and Blackbirds.
The flowering ivy at the top of Range Lane was covered in hoverflies and a few Red Admirals.
