Fields behind the RSSKL
Not a bad day behind the RSSKL with several good birds in my back garden including 1 Mistle Thrush, 2 Goldfinches, 2 Bullfinches and a calling Skylark indicating that the fields behind the RSSKL might be the place to go this morning. Only a small flock of 8 Linnets has built up so far, I hope for the 100's we had 2 years ago. In total 2 Great Spotted Woodpecker were heard calling followed by 4+ Skylarks on the route around from behind the RSSKL to Chipperfield Road. In total there were 3 Pied Wagtails and 4 Meadow Pipits of note and the hedgerows along the cow fields hosted a mixed flock of 30+ Redwing, Fieldfare and Starling. In the Chipperfield direction 2 more Fieldfare were seen and 65+ Woodpigeons, 14+ Goldfinches, a Red Kite (attended by a murder of Rooks and Jackdaws as it preened itself) were also of note and finally a flyover Lesser Black-backed Gull.
