Overcast mild WSW 4-5
A walk up a soggy track produced 3 Common Buzzard up over the wood. Also noted (and new for the year) were 10 Meadow Pipit and a Cormorant flying NW. The bare, ploughed fields behind the west side of the village (presumably waiting to be sown with either Beet or Spuds) is attracting good numbers of Golden Plover and Lapwing, with c300 and c50 respectively this afternoon. A couple of shots from the bottom of the garden before it got really dark!
