25 Oct 18

Broadcroft Quarry Lane, Pools, Bumpers Lane, Mermaid Track, Rufus Castle, Penn's Weare, St Andrew's Church and Penn's Wood.

You would think that covering all this area I would see or hear at least one of the Yellow-browed Warblers reported around Wakeham, but as my walk proved for the 4th day I seem to be the only one not finding them.

Only highlights this afternoon were a Chiffchaff in Broadcroft Quarry Lane, 1 in Bumpers Lane where there was also a Blackcap and another Chiffchaff in the grounds of St Andrew's Church.

Apart from that there wasn't anything else to report other than a solitary Ivy Bee at the top of Penns Wood by the road and a Common Drone Fly at Rufus Castle.

Here are a couple of images:
