Another short stayer

Sunny, 22°, light NE.

A surprise on the hill today with a Woodlark. A small bird flew from the top of a bush approx. 50m from me, I managed to get the bins onto it and noted a somewhat dumpy short tailed lark. As it flew over the hill it called several times and that confirmed the identity. I searched the area for a further hour but unfortunately no further sign and no pics either.

4 Mistle Thrush and a Yellow Wagtail on the hill and around 20 Swallow and Swift overhead moving steadily north.

A Lesser Whitethroat and another Yellow Wagtail out at Lollingdon and the Little Owl noted again.

A Nuthatch in the garden.

Mammals: Brown Hare and Roe Deer.

Reptiles: several Common Lizard.

Dragonflies: Azure Damselfly.

Butterflies: Brimstone, Large White, Small White, Green-veined White, Orange Tip, Small Tortoiseshell and Speckled Wood.
