First off was a very mobile black redstart at Low Newton, presumably the same bird that was reported in the vicinity a week or two ago....
While black redstart is a pretty good winter bird here, today's 'star bird' title must go to the humble skylark !
I was blown away by the massive number of skylarks both in the bird crops and logged flying along the coast, a real birding spectacle.....
|Today's star bird !.... well, not this particular one, but you know what I mean.....|
|Just a tiny part of the massive skylark flock in the bird crops......|
3 grey partridge
Finally, on the walk home 11 twite were at the Long Nanny.
