Splash and Dash

On my way home I called at my feeding station on Rawcliffe Moss to put some more seed out. I wasn't sure whether there would be many birds using it and I was surprised to find 70 Tree Sparrows there even though it was late afternoon. Accompanying the Tree Sparrows were 7 Chaffinch and I heard a Brambling call but didn't see it.

To the west of the feeding station on the neighbouring farm were 3,075 Pink-footed Geese that kept getting flushed and lifting up. Coming from the same direction were a group of 16 Skylarks and I had a further 5 as I walked along the edge of the 'big field'.

Along the hedge and ditch were 6 Reed Buntings and I didn't record anything more of interest on my short walk round.
