The Fields Behind The RSSKL

As I arrived in the field bordering the RSSKL there was 1 Green Woodpecker "yaffling" and 1♂ Kestrel was perched in the tall hedges that run along the A41.  The walk seemed to follow the usual routine and 1 Pheasant called near the woods next to Langley Lodge.  2 Yellowhammers were nearby (1♀ and 1 calling).  1 Skylark was also over the cow field (singing) and 1 Buzzard was circling over the fields near the ditch leading to Chipperfield.  My largest count of 3 Yellowhammers was near Ordnance Wood (and included 1♀ and 2 others (only heard calling and singing)).  1 Great Spotted Woodpecker was also calling from the wood and a total of 69 Pigeons (consisting of 34 Stock Doves and 35 Woodpigeons) were in the neighboring field but unfortunately took flight after being disturbed by me and the dog.
