Upottery Airfield, Smeatharpe

A bright sunny day but a strong biting northerly wind made birding difficult. Although not using the airfield, plenty of golden plover around as witnessed by 200+ flying NE. Skylarks around 30 and a scattering of Meadow Pipits.

Fieldfares at just over 50 were well down on the 585 of three days ago but a few more Redwings (c40). The Little Owl was showing well in its normal place.
