2 Days in the Parish......

Today…….
Had a walk in the woods and plenty of warblers singing, Whitethroat, Lesser Whitethroat, Chiffchaff, Willow Warbler, Blackcap and Sedge Warbler. Four Linnets along with a pair of Jays and Mistle Thrush was also present.
In the stubble fields there are Lapwing with chicks, not sure of their chances, apart from all the predators around the farmer will be cultivating any day!
The track to the pylons had numerous Whitethroats, Chiffchaff and finches as well as the usual Wrens, Tits and Blackbirds. A Kestrel was drawing attention from the Ravens while a Stoat was causing a loud response from a number of birds.
The tide was up to the bank though not much was showing today, I saw 9 Wheatear and spotted 6 Common Sandpiper along the river bank.

Monday…….
Freeman’s Pool was quiet, though did see 1 Green Sandpiper and 2 LRP. The wood had 2 Jays, Mistle Thrush, Song Thrush and half a dozen Whitethroat and Lesser Whitethroat. 3 Swifts were seen in the area.
Dan had 2 Sedge Warblers on the track before I met up with him. We made our way along the track and saw good numbers of warblers. 2 Skylarks. There were 2 Bar-tailed Godwits and 2 Eiders on the river. A Peregrine was hunting near the pylons.
