In total: 4 sparrow hawks and 2 common buzzards were noted. The second buzzard, shown here, is a new one to the parish
Fieldfares and redwings were seen along the path leading to Millfield Lane and more of the former on the polo fields. In all, over 50 fieldfare. Several green woodpeckers and yellowhammers were also seen along with the residents heard singing at this time of the year (dunnock, robin, tits and finches)
A red legged partridge covey was flushed from a hedgerow (14) and a muntjac seen near Green Street. As I wandered down Brick Kiln Hill into the village the clouds were gathering and within 10 minutes of getting home, the heavens opened. Certainly good timing.
