Patch Birding

 A birding day today with no camera as it was grey and cold with early fog.  It was a shortish walk today across the Horsefield and around the Dead Wood.  A buzzard flew low over the Horsefield and I was pleased to find a small flock of linnets in the hedge on the way across to Weelsby Woods.  A great spotter woodpecker was drumming in the Dead Wood and a male calling from the top of a tree in Weelsby Woods.  A few brave blackthorn flowers have already opened up and it won't be long before the hedges are a froth of white blossom again.  Other species seen included:

  • Mistle Thush
  • Song Thrush
  • Blackbird
  • Robin
  • Crow
  • Great Tit
  • Blue Tit
  • Jackdaw
  • Feral Pigeon
  • Yellowhammer
  • Jay
  • Starling
  • House Sparrow
  • Wood Pigeon
  • Magpie
  • Dunnock
  • Chaffinch
