Top Fields and Crown Estate Fields

Another visit to the fields in the hope of catching a glimpse of a Short-eared Owl or even a Stock Dove. Well yet again I missed out on the former, but finally after 38 days I've managed to see my first Stock Dove of the year.

Also about were 2 Kestrels working the fields, plus 2 Buzzards sat on the fence posts.

A large flock of around 50 Linnet dropped into the Estate Fields, where there were small pockets of Chaffinch feeding on the fallen seeds. In the adjacent horse field a small flock of 20+ Starling were feeding.

Two Skylarks heard and a couple of Meadow Pipits passed through.

Just the one image.

From the Crown Estate Fields the Obs on the left and the Lighthouse on the right.

Birds Recorded: 2 Buzzard, 2 Kestrel, Herring Gull, Great Black-backed Gull, 1 Stock Dove, Wood Pigeon, 2 Skylark, 2 Meadow Pipit, Great Tit, Blue Tit, Wren, Magpie, Carrion Crow, Jackdaw, 20+ Starling, Chaffinch and 50+ Linnet
