Fields behind the RSSKL (11th March)

Another Theo walk behind the RSSKL for about an hour at 9:15am.  The weather was more reminiscent of summer with:
  • cloud 1-2/3 shade 0/3
  • wind 0/3
  • temp. 2/3
Two flocks totaling 60+ Linnet started the day nicely in the first field behind the school followed by 1 singing Skylark and a Yellowhammer, 2+ Redwing and a distant Red Kite circling near the A41 towards Chipperfield.  After crossing the A41 and heading down towards Middle Farm I was astonished to see a total of no less than 6 Buzzards circling above in the thermals created by a beam of sunshine coming through a gap in the clouds.  Also in the area, 3 Skylarks in their song flight were of note along with a flyover Lapwing, 2 Canada Geese, and a small flock of Linnet amongst some Chaffinches in the arable fields surrounding Middle Farm.
