Had a quick walk around the patch today and managed to get onto approx 25-30 Whoopers they were a bit spooked as there was a local shoot in full flow. It did not seem to bother them too much.
Noticed big numbers of wood pigeon crow and starlings all competing for food in the fields.
Male peregrine soon scattered these. Nice to still some dragonflies hanging on not sure what type they are think they are red veined darters but had at least a dozen.
First Redwings of the year feeding on the local hedgerow berries and good numbers of Fielfare (75+)
Skylark and a family of about 6-7 Longtailed tits capped off a nice walk.
