Soar

Early start with Dave Norman at Soar this morning rewarded as soon as we stepped out of car with a Woodlark in flight over the carpark with a small flock of Skylark. The birds landed in the long stubble behind the grass runway and not seen again. Elsewhere 22 Skylark, 2 Stock Dove, 21 alba Wagtail, 2 Grey Wagtail and 2 Yellow Wagtail (one on the ground on The Warren in with cattle), 25+ Chiffchaff, Spotted Flycatcher, 4 Blackcap, 3 Goldcrest, Wheatear, 16 Stonechat, 20+ Goldfinch, 3 Cirl Bunting, 25+ Linnet, numerous Meadow Pipits, 2 Sparrowhawk, 3 Kestrel, 30+ Swallow, House Martin and a Green Woodpecker.

During quick stop at South Huish Marsh Dave photographed 2 Yellow Wagtail and an adult Med Gull on the way home on slipway to the ferry at Dartmouth. Also a pic of one of the Skylark.
