Higher Soar to Southdown Farm

The first decent morming in 10 days so another check on the open arable fields & hedges. Best of the morning was a wionter peak count of 43 Cirl Buntings along the hedges with 16 Yellowhammers and a male Bullfinch. Birds on the move already with 13 returning migrant Song Thrushes found along the hedgelines while on the stubbles 580 Skylarks (2nd highest count of the winter) and 13 Stock Doves.
