Today I picked up Dave at 07.20 and drove to High House Lane where we park the car, as we got our belongings together we could hear Blue Tit, Chaffinch and Great Spotted Woodpeckers drumming.
This is the wet scrape where we sometimes get Snipe
Mistle Thrush (thanks guys)
Dave spotted a lone Lapwing and then we spotted a Song Thrush and a Mistle Thrush. At the lake area I spotted lone Moorhen and a lot of Starlings in the field to the right, Dave then spotted a Wren and we could hear the distinctive call of the Great Tit, and 3 Greylag Geese flew over us.
As we moved towards the orchard area the rain had started and was getting quite heavy and we had just 1more spot beforfe heading back, a Robin and then lastly the call of the Stock Dove.
