Barnes Lane

Went out for a 7:30 morning walk to Barnes Lane.  The weather was humid, almost entire cloud cover and frequent showers probably stopped local migration as I didn't see a single hirundine.  The playing field was occupied by 1 Stock Dove, mixed within a small group of Woodpigeons.  4 Lapwing were also displaying over the fields behind the KL school and flew in the direction of the canal later in the morning.  I also heard several Blackcaps and 1 Yellowhammer, but remained elusive.  Whitethroats were singing near the underpass of the A41 and at least 4 Skylarks were singing in the neighbouring fields.
