Common Buzzard the highlight.....at 1100hrs
Today we had a Common Buzzard high above Slate heading South, at times there was a Sparrowhawk closeby the Buzzard... All Meadow Pipits had cleared from the Walls but there where a single party of 8 birds moved directly South and another single bird which was going on the Westerley route... Linnets (7), Willow Warbler (4), Greenfinch (4), Blackbird, Robin, Blue Tits, Magpies.. Swift just one which went directly through South. Also had a immature Robin near to Slate Farm...
Insects: Meadow Brown Butterfly (5), Small White Butterfly (1), Green Veined Butterfly (1), Brown Darter Dragonfly.
