Field Trip to Wales
The past three days were taken up by a field trip to Wales (which is the reason for the lack of recent updates). The trip to south Wales (Swansea), I saw dozens of corvids including Carrion Crows, Magpies, Jackdaws, Rooks and even 1 Raven (just before crossing the Severn Bridge into Wales). The trip wasn't short of raptors either including its fair share of Buzzards, Red Kites and occasional Kestrels (although far smaller numbers than I usually see hovering next to the motorway). There was also a gaggle of Canada Geese and Greylag Geese in the neighbouring field to the motorway and occasional small flocks of Lapwing.
