Back To The Day Job

No birding or ringing for me today, it was back to work. Mind you work was surveying some riparian woodlands so it wasn't all bad. I didn't see anything particularly exciting but it was pleasant walking along in the company of singing Blackcaps, Chiffchaffs and Willow Warblers.

 The Office Today!

On my way home I called in at Rawcliffe Moss to drop some bird seed off. As it was a nice afternoon I decided to have a walk round. As I headed down the track a Yellowhammer was singing from the hedge along the lane and down at the feeding station I had 21 Tree Sparrows. Walking up the '97' hedge it was very quiet other than a Buzzard going over and three singing Corn Buntings.

A male Sparrowhawk flew over the top fields and I headed towards the plantation. It was fairly quiet in the plantation except for 5 singing Willow Warblers, 9 Goldfinch and a noisy Jay. Heading back towards the track I had a Blackcap singing from the L Wood, a White Wagtail went over and a few Swallows were hanging around Curlew Farm. Not 'hard core' birding but very pleasant nonetheless!
