Higher Soar - Southdown Farm - Middle Soar

Highlight of the morning was a juv.Dotterel on winter cereals from the footpath just west of Higher Soar first seen at 0905hrs. It called as it flew up and around before resettling allowing good views. It then flew off south uttering its diagnostic calls as it went! Also: 4 Buzzard, 4 Kestrel, 400 Herring Gull, 45 Skylark, 5 Swallow, 320 Meadow Pipit, Grey Wagtail, 5 Wheatear, 24 Stonechat around the cove, 5 Raven, 110 Carrion Crow, 70 Goldfinch & 500 Linnet.
