Barnes Lane and Shendish Manor
After finishing today's Art exam went on a short walk along Barnes Lane towards Shendish Manor. It was relatively late by the time I got out (c.6pm) but still managed to fined a few birds. In the neighbouring fields to the horse field 1 Buzzard was perched on the fence post. Not much else was about except at Shendish were 1 Willow Warbler was showing well and singing. At least 1 Whitethroat was also sculking in the shrubbery behind Shendish Manor together with singing Chiffchaffs and Blackcaps. On my return 4 Swifts were hunting over the horse fields followed by a singing Skylark. The KL school playing fields hosted 1 Mistle Thrush, a small flock of Starlings and 8 Linnets.
