Peanuts and Seed
After I had put the food out I had a walk round the Moss but it was quiet. A number of Swallows, 223 to be precise, were feeding over of the wheat and barley. This anticyclonic weather that we have at the moment tends to build Swallow numbers up. A few butterflies were on the wing including numbers of Small Tortoiseshell, Red Admiral, Peacock and Speckled Wood.
Walking through the plantation I was struggling to find any birds and all I could 'notch up' were 2 Willow Warblers, Blackcap and 7 Long-tailed Tits. Walking back along the track a Buzzard soared over head and 6 Curlews headed west. Back towards the car I flushed a Great Spotted Woodpecker from a tree and that was it!
Afternoon 'arable' Sunshine
Ringing at the 'obs' tomorrow, so hopefully that will be better.
