Blowing in the Wind

Cloudier as the day wore on, 12º, quite a fresh southerly blowing, felt chilly.

As soon as we arrived on the hill today I thought there will not be much to see as there was a fresh southerly blowing straight on to the south face and yep! Nothing Wheatear found either although 3 Red Kite and 3 Buzzard in the air.

On the more sheltered side we could hear a couple of Corn Bunting singing, a daring Skylark high in the sky braving the windy conditions, a couple of Yellowhammers and 1 Chiffchaff seen and the thrush flock was still present with good numbers of Fieldfare and Redwing.

Amongst the visitors to the garden today were a Moorhen, 2 Stock Dove, 2, Mallard, 2 Treecreeper and a Blackcap.

6 more Toads taken out of the drain today, ones we could not reach yesterday, also over a dozen Oil Beetles noted.
