My first local swifts this morning, with 2 birds high over the garden as I sat reading.
I left it late for an outing, hoping that the 'not too hot' weather might improve the birdlife.
There seems to be some large size and colour differences to Meadow Pipits that I can't seem to grasp!!
Golf Course Area:
Chiffchaff, 4 Linnet, Meadow Pipit.
'Pipit in a tree'
Kestrel, Skylark, 2 Swallow
I just walked along the prom at Ogden Water and up through the car park, giving the circuit a miss this evening.
Just 4 Lesser Black-backed Gull on the water.
From Ogden to Home via Soil Hill:
4 Canada Geese with 4 young near the plantation.
2 Swallow, Whitethroat 2 Kestrel, Skylark, Meadow Pipit, Lapwing, Curlew.
and somewhere along the route...
