Horses for courses.....

Freeman’s Pool very quiet. On the track were Chiffchaff, Lesser Whitethroat, Common Whitethroat, Blackcap, Dunnock, Robin, Wren, Greenfinch, Goldfinch, Song Thrush and plenty of Blackbird. A Great spotted woodpecker near pylons. On the marsh 1 Little Egret, 5 Common Sandpiper, Goosander, Shelduck, Curlew, Grey Heron, LBB Gull, Herr Gull and a few BH Gull. Lapwing numbers have increased with a few hundred now present. A Buzzard and a Kestrel were hunting and being mobbed. Swallows and Swifts present and a few House Martins. 2 Skylarks also on the marsh. Horse Fly on good form and biting like mad!
