On this day 27 October 2016


To day was a much duller day and quite windy.
(Bad day for taking good photos)

The first thing that stood out was the lack of birds compared to Monday, the hedge next to the farm which is normally filled with House Sparrow was quiet, not one !
On the back lane there was one Yellowhammer and I did not spot the Little Owl. Furthest field next to the wood was empty too. Normally the Buzzards are there, later I found them flying round the lake annoying the Lapwings.

In the farmer's field all the Golden Plovers had gone, not one !!
About 120 Lapwings were flying round but not landing. On the other side of the road there was Greylag and Canada Geese grazing, with a few Coots.
