After Doris swept through yesterday a reasonably sunny day today but a bit cooler than of late.
2 Stonechat today with a male on the Hill and another, a female about 1km north out by the stubble fields. Arguably the first migrants of this year.
Still a small flock of Reed Bunting and Linnet out on the stubble and several Yellowhammer.
A flock of c30 Fieldfare on the hill and 6 Pied Wagtail and a Kingfisher by the farmhouse.
A few more flocks of Fieldfare around the fields and several Buzzard high overhead in display flight.
Redwing a bit thin on the ground but still a few around and a couple of Skylark in song flight.
A Treecreeper singing in the Millennium Wood, possibly the same one we get in the garden.
A new bird for the garden today in the form of a Reed Bunting that flew over this afternoon and around 20 Redwing settled in the garden trees for a short time.
Mammals: Roe Deer & Wood Mouse.
Butterflies: Brimstone, Peacock and Small Tortoiseshell.
We were lucky around here that we did not sustain much damage from storm Doris. Just a couple of trees down on the hill.
