BIRD SURVEYS IN EASTERN ENGLAND
After something of a drought for a few months, a bit of survey work popped up. Fair weather and south-easterly winds made for some nice outings, and all the usual suspects were recorded; Lapwings, Golden Plovers, Peregrine, Merlin, Hen Harrier, a flock of 46 Corn Buntings – but the best bird was never seen! Standing in a field near Mablethorpe a Richard’s Pipit flew overhead calling loudly. It called four times, but I couldn’t see it in the murk. Boo.
Here’s some pics of other stuff
