Pinkies chilling before scarpering
A walk up the track mid-morning produced 38 Golden Plover, 2 Kestrel, 1 Siskin west, several Fieldfare and Redwing back and forth and, for the second weekend on the trot, the adult Little Gull was still present showing well in flight and distantly on the deck.
Little Gull still present
Later on from the garden a Sparrowhawk teased somewhat by keeping its distance circling over the west fields and a Common Buzzard which looked suspiciously like our pale bird from the spring flew from the Ridge westwards. A Tawny Owl was noted near the boundary at Aylmerton Field Study centre early evening.
