Staying Local

Another local trip out, again very muddy and slippy underfoot. My first bird encounter was with the Common Gulls, Black headed Gulls and Blackbirds in the horse field which they and other bird species take a shine to. Moving off I had planned a different route this time going along the side and top of the quarry encountering hardly any bird life as I did so only the occasional Crow, Magpie and lots of Woodpigeon as they flew over.

More towards the wooded area I caught Bullfinch, Mistle Thrush and Jay the later giving themselves away by the harsh calls. It wasn’t till I got back near my start point that I picked up on more bird life mainly in the hedges House Sparrows, Blue Tit, Great Tit, Bullfinch, Robin and a Male Pheasant.

Bird List :- Blackbird, Black headed Gull, Blue Tit, Crow, Common Gull, Great Tit, House Sparrow, Jackdaw, Jay, Magpie, Mistle Thrush, Pheasant, Robin, Woodpigeon
