Holdstone down

A mid morning walk around Holdstone down today provided approx 50+ linnet, a big increase in the last couple of years, stonechat parents and fledglings,skylarks, meadow pipits and a singular whitethroat. Nearly all the birds were feeding on the mass populations of small to medium size butterfly of many different types/ breeds.
