The usual walk this afternoon up and over Soil Hill down Percy and along Back Lane then a circuit of the water and back via Percy.
Soil Hill was very windy with nuisance drizzle.
Just a Pheasant seen!!
A few Chaffinch and a Song Thrush were singing as I went up Back Lane with other birds joining in - a real spring like feel to the weather.
A couple of Pheasants were on the wall.
No sign of the Little Owl.
The water held 44 Honking Canada Geese and 3 Greylag Geese (a unusual species here) with the Mallards and just Black Headed Gulls as far as I could tell.
A Kestrel and not a lot else was seen on the way home as dusk approached.
It was very pleasant to get some mild walking weather for a change.
Half-term duties tomorrow may change my birding habit dramatically!
Some unusually cold artic winds due later in the week / weekend with some easterlies - bodes well for us I think.
A muddy Ned Hill Track
A bit of evening sun
3 Greylag Geese
